Through our School Travel Policy we actively encourage our pupils and staff to walk, scoot or cycle to school as they:
- keep us fit and healthy
- help our pupils develop road safety skills which will keep them safe as they travel further afield and more independently
- help keep our local air clean, and our streets free from congestion
- are life skills that everyone should be able to benefit from
The school has a travel plan in place and the aim of the programme is to encourage the school community to travel to school in a more active or sustainable way to help reduce the congestion caused by short (single occupancy car trips) on the 'school run'. This is particularly relevant to the Nursery Road area where there are a number of schools in close proximity. Research also clearly links active travel to school with improved academic achievement.
We hope that pupils will gain a better understanding of the health, environmental and social benefits of walking, cycling and the use of public transport as alternatives to unnecessary car journeys. This will encourage them to form more active travel habits that can be carried through into adult life.

If your child has been given a school place through an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) or Statement of Special Education Needs (SSEN) they may be entitled to travel assistance
Years 7-11 (aged 11-16)
- The distance from home to school is 3 miles or over, and
- the school is the nearest appropriate to your home.
If you are in receipt of the maximum level of Working Tax Credit or your child is in receipt of free school meals, your child may be eligible for travel assistance if they are attending one of their three nearest schools, which is between 2 and 6 miles from your home.
If you do not meet the criteria above, but your child's SEND, health or exceptional needs mean that they would benefit from travel assistance to school, we will consider their case based on their individual circumstances. You may be required to provide supporting evidence.
If you think that you may be eligible please contact
North East Area Office
Telephone: 01737 737940 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you your child does not have an EHCP or SSEN then you will need to check the eligibility under the Surrey County County Home to School Transport Policy. The information can be found by clicking here
