Travelling to KFJS

We need your help! 

As a school, we are working with local residents to reduce the amount of parking outside school grounds during pick up and drop off times. We have had several reported cases of parents parking over and on driveways. We are now reporting any illegal parking to the council so they can keep track of any cars that are not adhering to the rules. If you see anyone parking inconsiderately or illegally, use the link below to report them - we really do need to work together to help make your child's journey to school a safe one! https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=tdiBPwfuF0yGnB20OQGNmzW5hGeVXfJNgdEdRPU-NMVURU42STJBT0c4UDI4MlJUR1pJQTFaTjBCVi4u.

 

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!

 

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.
