Transport

UPDATES: 9th May 2022:

We are encouraging pupils and parents to take part in Walk to School Week, promoted by Staffordshire Country Council, week commencing 16 May 2022. Walking is a healthy, active and non-polluting way of getting to and from school. For those families that live too far to walk all of the way, try parking 5-10 minutes from the school and walk the rest of the way. Walking also contributes to a less congested environment around the school gates making it safer for everyone.
