Cortonwood Infant School are proud to say we are a bronze accredited Active Travel School!
With the help of our Active Travel Officer Dominic Qasar-Sweeting and the support and participation of children and parents we achieved the award in Summer 2019.
Events we have run include "ditch the stabilisers", bike it breakfasts, park and strides, Be Safe -Be Seen, Scooter skills and safety, bike skills and safety and many more. We also like to take part in the nation wide 'Big Pedal' and 10 Day Active Travel challenges.
Look out for our up coming events!
5 Minute walking zones.
The children from Mrs Menzies' class timed five minute walks in different directions around school. They put up posters to show people they could park here and walk the remaining five minutes of their journey to school.
Bike and Scooter Breakfast
Thank you to all the families who met us at Holly Bush Park and walked, cycled or rode their scooter to school with us for breakfast in the hall. It was a lovely, active start to the day.
Ditch the Stabilisers!
Well done to the children who took part in the ditch the stabilisers event. They showed great resilience and determination with some fantastic results.
