Travel , News & Accreditation

Staff, pupils and Governors are continually working to improve sustainable travel to and from School as well as helping make parking around the school site safe.

The School Council ran a poster competition for pupils about safer parking outside school (refer to Pupil Voice section) and have taken part in many other initiatives like Bikeability (Year 6), Car-Free Day, Walk to School Week and The Big Peddle.

We have also had a representative from the Road Safety Team at Greenwich Council visit our Year 4 pupils to talk about the important road safety messages and the Green Cross Code.

 

GOLD!

I am delighted to inform you that we have achieved GOLD accreditation from the Transport for London travel scheme.

Thank you to parents, pupils and staff for helping us achieve this by really getting involved in all the different travel initiatives we run.

The Head Boy & Head Girl represented the School at the STARS Primary Gold Awards Ceremony at The Kia Oval, London. They took part in workshops and looked at more ways to help improve sustainable travel.

Walk to School Week

How great it was to see so many parents and pupils taking part in Walk to School Week. This really helped reduce congestion outside the school and the children had fun walking or scooting to School with their friends or cycling with their parents. Thank you to everyone who took part.
