Getting to School

Getting to School

Headley Park School is located in a busy residential area where parking on local streets is very limited.

We actively encourage pupils to walk, cycle or scoot to school and participate in the Living Street Walk to School initiative. Walking to school is a good way of encouraging you child to be active & fit and also has a positive impact on their alertness for learning at the start of the day.

Why are we encouraging walking to school?

Under half of UK children walk to school and this number is decreasing, whilst the number of children being driven to school has doubled in the last 20 years. Our school is taking part because of the many benefits we believe it will bring to our children and the community.

It may not be possible to walk to school every day but the initiative encourages families to walk to school at least once a week. At the end of each month, children who walked at least once every week will receive a special collectable pin badge.

Walking home from school

Children in Year 5 and 6 are allowed to walk home alone but only if we have your permission to let them leave the premises. If you would like your child to walk home alone or leave school to join you outside the gates, please complete and return a permission slip which is on the online forms section of this website or available from the office.

What if we can’t walk to school?

If you live too far away or don’t have time to walk the whole way to school, children can still participate in the initiative by walking at least 10 minutes to school. We call this Park and Stride

 

If driving we recommend that you Park and Stride to earn your badge – park safely away from the school e.g. at a friend’s house or Cater Road industrial estate – and walk the rest of the way.

 

If you do need to park near the school please ensure that you obey parking restrictions, consider how your parking might impact on the safety of children crossing the road and be considerate of local residents.

 

For safeguarding reasons, no child will not be able to leave on their own until we receive a completed consent form!
