Ditch the Dark Day 2018

20th Nov 2018

In celebration of our Bronze Sustrans School Mark Award and to mark Road Safety Week 2018, our school community participated in a special 'Ditch the Dark Day'. Children, staff and families were encouraged to walk, scoot or cycle to school in their brightest clothing in order to promote safe, active travel. 

We were delighted to have Johnny McCrystal from Sustrans with us on the day to deliver a special assembly and present our Bronze Sustrans School Mark Award. We received the award for working hard to promote active travel to and from school and we have been very successful in doing so. Data collected shows that the number of cars in our carpark has decreased, on average, by 10% and the number of pupils walking to school has increased by approximately 10%. We look forward to continuing our partnership with Sustrans to further promote active travel both in school and in the local community.
