Active Journeys

We took part in the Christmas Bling competition. Our scooters and bikes were amazing and very festive! We also designed posters about keeping safe when travelling in the colder months - take a look at the winners below!

Our Active Journeys Crew chose children who actively travel to school to receive a medal. They were looking carefully each week of the Big Shift! Well done to everyone who took part, we really appreciate your support!

This year, 2017-2018, we are working towards achieving our Bronze School Mark Accreditation Award.

 

Over the next few years we will be working to promote walking, scooting and cycling to school in the following ways:

  • By making sure school has the facilities needed by young people who want to walk, scoot or cycle to school, including secure storage facilities.
  • By working with the local training providers to help young people to travel safely and feel more confident making journeys by foot, scooter and bicycle.

  • By organising promotional activities and events to encourage young people to travel actively to school.

  • By involving parents so that they can help support the school and young people with active travel events and activities.

 


 

The main aim of our Active Journeys Programme is to see more of our pupils choosing an active and healthy journey to school.

Increasing the number of children who regularly walk, cycle or scoot to school has numerous benefits including:

  • increased physical activity levels resulting in improved health and wellbeing

  • reduced congestion around schools

  • improved relations with the local community

  • improved academic performance and attendance rates

  • increased road safety awareness

  • increased confidence, self-esteem and independence for young people.
