Safe and Active Travel 2023-24
Following our success in this area last academic year, we are already on our way to maintaining our bronze level award again this year. Please see our action plan below and look out for information about Road Safety Week coming soon.
Activities to date...
A number of events took place during the Spring Term to help us to maintain our Bronze Level as part of the Safe and Active Travel Campaign. A huge thank you to everyone who took part! Due to staff absence, and availability of dates, our action plan is being completed slightly out of the original order, but we are working hard to make sure that we cover everything we have planned this year.
Some of you may have seen that we are encouraging parents and carers to turn their engines off whilst waiting outside the school gates at drop-off and pick-up times. This helps us to keep the air around our school as clean as possible for our pupils, staff, parents and local residents. There is a banner on the school fence in case you are interested.
We also had our second bike-marking session on Thursday 23rd March in the KS2 playground for pupils, parents and local residents to come along and have their bike marked in case of theft. Those who visited received a item to help them to 'Bling their Bike'!
Last year, Bridgetown Primary School signed up to take part in an Active Travel Award as part of the safe and Active Travel Schools Programme. This programme includes road safety and cycling proficiency along with other exciting schemes. The Active Travel Award programme is aimed at getting more pupils walking, cycling and scooting to school and last year we received a Bronze Award in recognition of our efforts.
This year we are aiming to maintain our Bronze award! To help us to achieve this, we have written an action plan (see below) so please watch out for exciting initiatives throughout the school year.
