During October we will be taking part in Active Travel Month. Each time a pupil walks, scooters or cycles to school they will receive a tick on a chart in their class. The class with the most active travellers will win a trophy and the school with the highest percentage of active travel within South Leicestershire will win an award. 

There is also a poetry competition in support of the scheme with the opportunity for us to win a free bike shelter. Any entries will need to be sent to Mr Green by this coming Friday (8th October).
