It has been fantastic to see so many of you walking to school recently! We hope, as the weather gets warmer, more and more of you will be encouraged to do the same! Recently our walkers enjoyed a breakfast in the playground, which was a lovely start of to the day!
Remember, at Springfield we promote active travel to school as part of a healthy lifestyle and to reduce congestion and pollution on London’s roads. We encourage all families that live within 1km of the school to walk to school and for families that live further away, we have cycle maps available in the school office.
Did you know?
- If you live within 1km of the school, it will take you just 15 minutes for you and your child to walk to school?
- Walking 1 km trips instead of driving them could save you over £100 each year in petrol costs.
- Walking on a regular basis is good for your heart and lungs, helps burn calories and is a brilliant way to a healthier active lifestyle.
