To round the walk to school month off, all staff took part in a car park free day on Tuesday by walking to school or taking part in the park and stride option.

Clare added: “We are hoping this sets a great example to the children and helps them stick to trying to improve the clean air around or school and more importantly keep our children safe. In the future, we plan to work closely with the council to help keep many of the parents cars away from school.”
