Mountbatten Primary School’s Walking Bus is provided to help raise attendance and reduce lateness. It also encourages children to take part in keeping fit, to enjoy being out in the fresh air and teaches pedestrian safety skills. It is supervised by Mrs Naylor, Mrs Brown and Mrs Nurden.
The Walking Bus follows a route around the local streets – Lingdale Road, Wingfield Road, Taylor Avenue and Wivern Road. There is space for 16 pupils each day; 8 places are for identified families and there are 8 places which are available to book through Parentmail for each week. There is no cost for the Walking Bus.
The Walking Bus arrives at school in time for the children to have breakfast and spend some time taking part in activities in Breakfast Club.
If you would like more information about the Walking Bus, the route it takes or how to book your children a place on it, please speak to Miss Dobbs in the School Office.
