Walking Bus

We strive to be a healthy and active school.  We encourage our children and parents to walk to school as much as is possible as Kingsmill Road can easily become very congested.  To support families and set a good example the teaching staff at St John’s run a Walking Bus.  This has been very successful over the last few years and the percentage of children that walk to school at least once a week has been increasing.

The staff lead two walking buses from two locations near the school once a week.  The buses leave at 8:30am to arrive in time for school and return back to the same location immediately after school.
‘Walk to School Week’ is held each year during the summer term – a week where we encourage all the children to walk to school and reward them for their efforts.  The Walking Bus also runs every day during the week.  Each class competes to get the most pupils walking during the week.
