School Travel Plan

Shirehampton Primary School encourages pupils, staff and all visitors to walk or cycle to and from school whenever possible.

Pupils are aware that walking and cycling to school can improve their health, fitness, is good for the environment and keeps the local streets free from congestion.

 

What we encourage and how it is supported:

Walking

  • Road safety is taught in dedicated PSHE lessons.
  • The school can be accessed via three separate pedestrian entrances which provide ease of access from various points in the surrounding local area.
  • Reward badges are given to pupils who have made a continual effort to walk to school.

Cycling/Scooter

  • A secure bike shelter is available in the playground for all pupils to use.
  • A cycle training afterschool club is provided for Key Stage 2 pupils.
  • Reward badges are given to pupils who have made a continual effort to get to and from school using either of these methods.

Park and Walk

  • Detailed information of parking options (within a 5 minute radius) was issued to parents to encourage park and stride.
  • Reward badges are given to pupils who have made a continual effort to utilise park and stride.

Local Transport Links

The school is well-served by bus and rail transport links:

  • The nearest train station is 0.6 miles from school which is a 14 minute walk.
  • The nearest bus stop is 0.3 miles from school which is a 7 minute walk which has buses that serve the local areas and city centre.
