We are a Travelwise school! We're committed to promoting safe and sustainable travel options within our school community. Students actively participate in the Travelwise programme, embracing responsible transportation choices such as walking, biking, scootering and carpooling. As advocates for safer and greener travel, our students contribute to creating a safer environment around our school. 

Being Travelwise on the way to school is an excellent way to include daily physical activity into your child/ren’s life. And if you do this with them, it’s an excellent way to get some physical activity for yourself too!  Here are 7 great reasons to walk, bike or scooter to school together:


  1. Quality Time Together: Walking, biking, or scootering to school is a brilliant way to share quality time and strengthen the bond with your child/ren.
  2. Wellness Boost: Embracing Travelwise habits contributes to the overall well-being of your child/ren, fostering a healthy and active lifestyle.
  3. Environmental Responsibility: Choosing sustainable modes of transportation demonstrates a commitment to reducing your family's carbon footprint and promoting a cleaner environment.
  4. Community Connection: Joining others on the journey to school fosters a sense of community among families, creating a positive and supportive atmosphere.
  5. Stress Relief: The daily commute becomes a stress-relieving activity, offering a refreshing start to the day and a calming wind-down in the afternoon.
  6. Road Safety Education: Walking, biking, or scootering provides an opportunity to teach and reinforce important road safety skills in a practical, real-world context.
  7. Cost-Effective: Save on transportation costs – no need for petrol money when you opt for the simple and cost-effective choice of active commuting.

Together, we can make a difference!
