We have a Bronze Travel Plan. Our School Travel Plan is supported by the whole school community and demonstrates our long-term commitment to improving safety and reducing congestion on the roads.
The Parish Council ask that we do not park on the grass. We appreciate that sometimes there is no-where to park outside school. If you drive to school, please park past the duck pond near to the Chapel and walk to school over the bridge. See the walking map below.
Walk to School Week
Twice a year we have a whole school Walk to School week, where we ask that you park past the Chapel and walk, cycle or scoot into school with your child.
Park and Stride
This is a fun walking initiative for the children. We ask that you park past the Chapel and walk, cycle, scoot or ride their pony to school. There are no roads to cross and it is a great opportunity to have a conversation with your child on your way to school.
See the walking map below.
Our KS1 children receive footsteps training during their time at Thornborough Infant School. Footsteps is a pedestrian training scheme for young children, which develops awareness of roads and aims to give them an understanding of road safety. Children are taken into the local area with a trained tutor to observe the traffic and discuss road safety. They learn about finding and using safe places to cross the road and are taught to “stop, look, listen.” Footsteps trainers and children wear high-visibility tabards in a one-to-one or, one-to-two adult-to-child ratio, with the children holding the adult's hand at all times.
If you are interested in becoming a Footsteps trainer, please speak to us.
