At Duxford CofE Community Primary School, we are developing an Active Travel Plan, of which the purpose is to encourage as many pupils and adults as possible to walk, scoot or cycle to school as often as possible. To help us keep track of how active we are we use the county accreditation Modeshift Stars. Our Eco Group are working hard to encourage everyone to walk, cycle, scoot or use the school bus to come to school.
Every year many classes have Bikeability training to give children the skills and confidence they need to cycle safely. This starts with balance bikes in Reception up to cycling on the road in Year 6.
We plan to offer children training in using their scooter safely during 2021 – 2022. We also plan to have additional cycle storage available from 2022 – 2023 as well as scooter storage.
Being active helps us to stay healthy and also helps the environment. Please do all you can to enable your child to travel to school in a healthy way.
A copy of our Travel Plan will be available soon.
