Walking Bus

Dear Parent/Carer,


In our continuing efforts to improve whole school attendance and punctuality, we are going to start offering a daily Walking Bus for children. This would entail children being collected daily from designated drop off points from about 8.15am and walking to school accompanied by members of staff. As well as helping to get children into school, the walking bus also promotes an active lifestyle whilst aiming to reduce congestion and pollution in our local area.


We are aiming to launch Woodlea’s Walking Bus on Monday 11th September 2017. You can find more out about the benefits of a school Walking Bus at


Two routes have been selected each with two pick up points, if you could please indicate your preference on the return slip below. Please can you return the slip below no later than Thursday 7th September to express your interest in this service, so that we are able to plan routes and staffing accordingly and let parents/carers know?


Yours faithfully,



Name and class of child(ren) in school­­­­


Please tick the appropriate box:


Route 1: Spar Shop on Broadfield Drive, followed by St Mary’s Priory Club
