Walk to School Weeks

Park & Stride ...


St. Mary's holds a Walk to School Week every term - please check the School Diary for dates. We ask the children, (with parental permission of course), to try and either walk from home, park and stride, cycle, scooter (or car share/use public transport - outside of COVID restrictions).


We have an arrangement with Father Benedict at St. Mary's Catholic Church and the Co-Op, who let us use their car parks so you can ‘park and stride’ the last part of the journey if you live too far away. Please try and join in the fun, thank you for all your support.


Extra Playtime for Class Winners!

The class with the highest average kilometers walked will be awarded an extra breaktime! Look out for termly results in our school newsletters.
