At Pennycross Primary, we offer a walking bus service. We operate in the local area, incorporating the St. Pancras, Melrose and Fountains area (see route map below). The scheme has been in operation since 2012 and has proved to be very successful with both children and parents. As we are a healthy school, the walking bus encourages some children to walk who would otherwise be driven to school. The children who already participate enjoy the experience as they are able to walk together as a group and interact with children from other year groups. As well as developing their social skills, the children also learn about road safety as they walk to school. The walking bus is lead by Miss Rees, who is also an experienced TA, and assisted by Mrs Curtis who is also an MTA at our school.
If your are interested in your child joining the walking bus, then please contact the school office on 01752 705137.
