Lanesend Primary School encourages and supports the whole school community to travel more actively and sustainably where possible.
Studies show that travelling actively can help develop physical and mental well-being, social interaction, independent travel skills and good road sense. This helps ready our children for when they leave the school to go to transition into secondary education.
We currently work with a range of external providers, such as Wight Cycle Training, the ‘SHIFT-IT’ Awards Programme and the Isle of Wight Council, to keep up-to-date with any appropriate schemes, training or grants that help us deliver our School Travel Action Plan.
Our Current Offer
- School Travel Action Plan - We have a current plan that is reviewed annually.
- Cycle Training - We have training sessions for all ages and abilities. Bikeability is offered to year 6 pupils. Balanceability club is run by the school.
- Scooter Training – Playground sessions and pavement training around the school area are run by Wight Cycle Training
- Road Safety Training – We actively engage with National Road Safety Week, and school programmes offered by outside agencies e.g. Fire Service.
- Cycle/Scooter Storage – Our current storage is at the front entrance or in the playground which enables pupil’s bikes to be stored safely and securely in the scooter racks.
