Everyone is valued and learning is fun

Walk to School Week Monday 5th October - Friday 9th October - Walktober

Did you know it is National "Walk to School " week from Monday 5th October until Friday 9th October?


How can I help?

  • Walk to School with your child and discuss potential hazards such as driveways, junctions, parked cars and bends.
  • Let your child suggest places to cross and discuss their choice.
  • See if they know and can use the Green Cross Code.


I don't have time to walk!

  • Park the car some way from the school gates and walk part of the way  (Use our Park And Stride FREE car parks below!)
  • Bulbeck Road (West Street) Car Park,

    Prince Georges Street Car Park,

    East Pallant Car Park,

    Town End House Car Park (HBC spaces only – not LiveLink Private car park spaces - limited availability)

    The above car parks are available FREE to Fairfield and Bosmere parents/carers between the times:  

  • 8.20am to 9.05am (for morning school run) and 2.50pm to 4pm (for afternoon collection)


  • Try to find time to walk with them at least once during the week
  • Your child will qualify for a certificate if either option is taken.


What are the advantages of walking?

  • The chance to teach important road safety skills which cannot be taught in a car.
  • The chance to learn about the local environment.
  • A chance to chat about the day.
  • Less congestion at the school gate.
  • A healthier way to start the day.
