Travel

You can find our school by clicking here

We actively encourage our pupils and staff to walk or cycle to school.  This helps:

  • keep us fit and healthy
  • our pupils develop road safety skills which will keep them safe as they travel further afield and more independently
  • keep our local air clean, and our streets free from congestion

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in public transport services operating with a limited capacity - around 14 passengers per bus.  Please walk or cycle if possible.

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.

Walking

If possible please walk to school as this is the best way to guarantee that you arrive to school on time.  The map below provides approximate walking times.

  • 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.

Exceptional circumstances

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, Surrey County Council 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
