We encourage you to think about how your child gets to and from school. Children who walk or cycle to school tend to be fitter, healthier and more alert in class than children who are driven. Leaving the car at home has real benefits for you and your child: better air quality, safer roads and less inconvenience to local residents. A small number of children may be eligible for free home to school transport. More information is available here.

We are a Bike Friendly School. Our cycle compound securely holds 10 bicycles and our scooter park holds 10 scooters. It was purchased from funds raised by the children themselves and a grant from CityConnect. All our children receive Bikeability training in Year 6.

More information about our school bus service is available here. Download information about routes and timetable from the documents section below.

The car park is for staff only. Parents should not attempt to use the school car park unless you have a blue badge or by prior arrangement with school staff. We ask all drivers to observe our drivers' code of practice - available to download below. Parking illegally or inconsiderately not only causes inconvenience to local residents and undermines our efforts to be a good neighbour, but also causes a danger to other children and pedestrians. We work with Leeds City Council's uniformed patrol officers to identify dangerous and inappropriate parking. Instead of parking outside school, please consider our Park and Stride Scheme - an information leaflet is available to download below.

We encourage you to walk with your children to school where practical. Children in Years 5 and 6 may walk home from school provided written permission has been sent to the school office.
