So far 2022 has been an exciting year for our school as we embark on our Travel Plan Journey.
It is our aim to support all members of the school community to travel safely to and from school, to raise awareness of alternative methods of travel and to try and reduce the number of cars in the area.
We are extremely proud of our new Cycle Shelter and Scooter Pod and hope to see them filled with bikes and scooters over the coming school year.
