Travelling to KFJS

Walktober 2019

 

We’re taking part in this year’s Walktober challenge, which has a ‘walking for wellbeing’ theme.

 

Challenge cards have been sent home with children so they can record their Walktober achievements. Each family member should try out one of the five types of Walktober wellbeing activities on as many days of the month as possible. Colour in a section of each pair of footprints each day to log activities.

 

The suggested activities are based on the NHS’s Five Steps to Wellbeing:

  • Connect.
  • Be active.
  • Keep learning.
  • Be mindful.
  • Give to others.

We are really keen for our pupils (and parents!) to walk, cycle, scooter or travel by bus to school. We are located in a residential area, so the roads get very congested with cars. And it’s much healthier to not travel by car anyway.

 

We are proud to say that we received the Silver Award from ModeShift Stars! This means that we have shown a real committment to sustainable travel through a range of different activities. You can find out more here!

 

                       

 

Here is some information which will help your decision in travelling to school.

Park and Stride

Here are some areas where you could park and then stride into school. This really eases congestion!
