Dear Parent / Carer,
Our school will be taking part in the 10 day Active Travel Challenge starting on Monday 12th and finishing on Friday 23rd October 2020.
The challenge is for pupils & their families to choose an active way of getting to school over the 10 day period. The challenge is also open to school staff and we will be making every effort to take part too.
Walking, cycling, skating, scooting and park & stride are all active ways of travelling and we hope by taking part in the challenge it will:
- Improve health & wellbeing of our pupils & their families
- Encourage pupils and families to be more active
- Reduce congestion and parking problems around our school
- Improve air quality around school
Please be aware if you live a long way from school and need to drive you can still take part by parking away from school (at least a 5 minute walk) and walking the last part of your journey, this is called Park & Stride.
We are competing against schools from across South Yorkshire so we really do need your help. Please do your best to be active on your journey to school and help us complete the challenge.
