School Travel Plan
Important information on travelling to school, road safety and pollution
Travelling to School
We encourage families to walk, cycle or scoot to school and have lockable bike and scooter sheds available in the playground. Please ensure your bike or scooter is clearly labelled with your child’s name to avoid the wrong equipment being taken at the end of the day. Wendell Park School has achieved the Transport for London STARS Gold level for its Active & Safer Transport Initiatives.
By using sustainable transport, we not only improve our environment and our own health, but it also helps us to start the school day bright and cheerful.
Road Safety & Pollution
Wendell Park wants to ensure the safety of all our pupils and families especially as they arrive in the morning and leave in the afternoon. We ask that parents do not park on the zig-zag yellow lines directly outside the school and that parents turn their engines off whilst waiting to collect their children.
Children participate in Road Safety sessions throughout the school and this is regularly revisited during PSHE/Circle Time. Children are taught about how to cross the road safely and this is reinforced on school trips where an element of walking along roads might be required.
