Walking Bus

Due to COVID 19 restrictions, our walking bus service is postponed until further notice...

A walking bus is a scheme which encourages children to walk to school along a set route. The children walk in pairs and everyone wears a high visibility jacket .An adult at the front acts as a driver and another adult at the back acts as a conductor. The children are collected at bus stops at set times along a set route on a daily basis. Parents are also an important part of the bus and are encouraged to take part and walk with bus when available.

Walking buses are a fun and safe way to get to school .The walking bus has been very successful and has provided many benefits to children, it promotes healthy exercise, develops pedestrian and social skills as well as improving children’s independence whilst in a safe environment.
