At Sneinton St Stephen’s C of E Primary we encourage pupils, parents and staff to travel to school by cycling, scooting and walking wherever possible. To help with this we are working with UK charity Sustrans and Nottingham City Council to deliver a wide range of activities that help to promote sustainable and active travel and make sustainable and active travel choices more accessible to all. The school is committed to raising awareness of Road Safety and provide regular learning opportunities through the curriculum.
Travelling actively to school by cycling, scooting or walking has many benefits; it’s good for our health and the environment, it saves money and it also helps to keep the streets outside our school traffic free and pedestrian friendly.
Our school Travel Plan explains how we will be encouraging active travel to school. You can request a copy from the school office, or find it here on our school website www.sneintoncofeprimaryschool.co.uk
Opportunities and local events across Nottingham are promoted within our school community. Children, family members and staff are encouraged to participate.
We aim to involve staff, parents and pupils in the development of our policy; reviewing it periodically to ensure it is kept relevant and up to date. If you have any ideas to improve things at or around school for pedestrians and cyclists, or questions about travelling to school, please get in touch with;
