The 'Walking Bus'
At Silkmore Primary Academy we offer a 'Walking Bus' service in order to further support families with the transition from home to school. The 'Walking Bus' occurs daily and is led by the Emotional Well-being Leader. We offer two 'Walking Bus' routes which facilitates and engages with most families in the local area and we greet families warmly in the morning by collecting children and walking them to school safely.
This has been very well received and has had a significant impact on children being late and being able to attend school.
Parents are welcome to join the 'Walking Bus' route with their child or give consent to school staff to take them to school.
This really is a brilliant way to start the day.
Do contact the Office or Mrs Exton for any further information.
