Our school are assisting Surrey County Council’s Safer Travel Team to undertake research with parents of primary aged pupils’ types of travel to and from school. The objective of the research is to develop a better understanding of the different types of travel, how frequently they’re used, why that type is used and if that preferred type has changed or been influenced by Covid-19 coronavirus.

Once the Safer Travel Team have collected and analysed this information provided by parents, their goal is to obtain a better understanding of journeys to school, so they can continue encouraging safer and more active travel to school for all children in Surrey. Please could I ask that you review and complete the survey using the link below.

The closing date for completing the survey is 11.59pm on 16th April and the survey should be completed for each child that attends our school.

If you have another child which attends a separate primary school, please complete an additional survey. https://www.surreysays.co.uk/iai/41377978 Thank you for continuing to support our school to improve pupils' journeys to school.

Going out for your daily exercise is the ideal time to discuss road safety with your children. If your own work means this isn't possible and your child has access to an Apple device, download VRW and explore the rules and strategies for staying safe in a virtual world. The application enables children to immerse themselves in a virtual environment - creating their own character and completing various quests which require them to navigate themselves around the city, crossing roads safely. This is an opportunity for them to educate themselves with a real life problem, in the safety of their own home.

There are many resources and support for sharing the Green Cross Code with your children.

We all need to remember - we must give the road our full attention at all times. This video reminds us of how they should travel safely - holding hands, not being distracted and not going ahead of parents. We must be fully aware of driveways and cars reversing and so it is essential children stay close to their parents whenever they are out walking, scooting or cycling.
