Bike it, Walk it, Scoot it!

At Twickenham Prep we are committed to encouraging our community to seek alternatives to using the car every day for their journey to and from school, of which there are many benefits:

  • Improved safety of pupils due to less traffic
  • Less congestion around the school and in the local community
  • Healthier, happier, more alert pupils, thanks to active travel eg cycling and walking
  • Less pollution around the school and local area.
  • Improved road awareness of pupils
  • Greater staff health and wellbeing
  • Improved journey reliability for staff, pupils and parents

 

We do this in a number of ways:

  • Communicating to our pupils through assemblies and workshops the benefits of walking, scooting or cycling to school
  • Taking part in the LBRUT provided schemes such as Safe Walking, Safer Cycling, Junior Citizen and Scooter training
  • Provide safe bike storage for staff and pupils and scooter storage
  • Asking parents to park considerately and not to idle
  • Providing a minibus service for our families throughout the surrounding areas
  • We participate in the Cycle to Work Scheme
  • We use the School Party Travel Scheme for school trips when feasible
