The Spinney encourages families to use sustainable methods of transport such as walking, or cycling. While we are fortunate to be located in a beautiful residential area, we are aware that the number of cars arriving to deliver or collect children from school can create a great deal of congestion and a possible disturbance to our neighbours. We therefore ask that where parents are able that they walk to school or cycle or scooter. Further details of this expectation can be found in the school's travel plan. Children on bikes must wear cycle helmets, and the children in Year 6 take a safer cycling course. We are always pleased to hear from parents who would like to help in this course.
An important aspect of our social teaching is to respect and care for each other's property. However, we advise parents that cycles are bought to school at the owner's risk, and the school cannot accept responsibility for any damage.
