Park and stride scheme
We recognise that sometimes students live beyond a reasonable
walking distance from their school and it is not always possible to
walk the whole distance.
Sometimes even the most regular walkers need to utilise a
car for journeys, especially when travelling elsewhere
(such as to a friend, relative or club) after school.
If you are faced with this predicament why not try our 'park and
stride' scheme - which is simply, parking a short distance away
from the school (usually in a designated area) and then walking the
rest of the journey.
This provides an ideal opportunity to still get some fresh air,
a spot of exercise and increase roadside experience for younger
pedestrians. Furthermore it clears busy school roads from the
congestion of cars and makes a much nicer safer walking environment
for all. Want to give it a go?
