King Edward Primary Working with Go Smarter

posted 17 May 2019, 06:58 by Linn Hoggins
We are working with North Tyneside’s Go Smarter team to try and make the school a safer and healthier place. We would like to get people travelling actively to school by walking, cycling and scooting so that we can get healthier bodies and minds. We are trying to make the area around school safer for all our children by keeping cars away from the school gates. This will also reduce the pollution we have to breathe in.

To help with that, we are encouraging everyone to cycle, scoot or walk to and from school if possible as part of Healthy Living Week next week. We are also having a ‘Car free day’ at school on Thursday 23rd May. If you can, we would love it if people could leave their cars at home. If you need to bring a car please try to park it away from the school.

Dr Bike will be visiting on this day so if you can bring in your children’s bikes he will check them over and fix things if possible. This might help get bikes working again and save some money buying a new one! There will be other fun activities going on in school during the day too.

Thanks for you help!
