Walktober and Park & Stride scheme

Basil Bird welcomed the children to school following a walk to school initiative called 'Walktober'.  We were really impressed with the number of children who took part, walking from the Jubilee Field to the school. 

We ask everybody in the school community to help make our school run safer and healthier by walking, scooting or cycling to school every day. There’s lots of cycling storage and it makes a really healthy start to the day, cuts down on congestion outside of the school and improves the air quality.  In particular, we really want to reduce the numbers of cars on Westbeams and Church Lane.

Our new Park and Stride scheme is now in place. Please see below the link to the new park and stride map. We would ask all families to make use of the park and stride facilities at the Jubilee Fields, the Manor at Sway and in front of the Forest Heath Flats. We thank the Parish Council, local businesses, the Manor at Sway for fully supporting this scheme. We now need your support to make the school run safer.
