SUSTRANS Bike to School week

Bike to School Week took place from 28 September to 2 October 2020. We promoted and encouraged our children and families to come to school by bike, scooter or foot. We recorded numbers of around 2 thirds which was great and offered extra 'fun' sessions of PE and Computing for the 2 classes with the most children (and school staff) taking part.

As a celebration and thank you to all the children who supported the cycle, scoot and walk to school week we ran our first ever Tour de WHA on Friday 9th October.

We invited the whole school from Year 1 to Year 6 to come to school with their bike or scooter. We relaxed our 'no cycling' and 'no scooting' policy and ran short sessions during the school day for the children to complete circuits of the playground. As you can see from the photos the bike shed and racks were pretty full! Over 260 children took part and safely completed several 'tours' of the playground in their year group bubbles. This event was a great success and hugely enjoyable so we will definitely be doing it again!
