Getting Active — Haddenham St Mary's School Travel Plan Team

Haddenham St Mary's school values a healthy lifestyle and has been encouraging the children to walk or scooter to school by organising a number of activities to highlight the benefits of being active. The aim is to show youngsters that we should walk more because:

  • it is fun!
  • it is healthy
  • it is educational
  • it is good for the environment
  • it saves money

The School Travel Plan Team looks to encourage safe, sustainable travel and a healthy lifestyle. The Plan aims to:

  • reduce traffic congestion at school
  • improve safety for the children
  • promote healthy lifestyles, including walking, cycling, scooting
  • be a good neighbour to other members of the community

Activities have included Scavenger Hunt, Santa Stroll, Scooter Snake to School, Happy Shoesday, Allotment Amble.

On one Wednesday in mid-June the children met at Haddenham Catholic Church to stride to school with Strider (the Living Streets Walk to School mascot) who then stayed to shake some moves in the school's weekly 'Wake and Shake' session led by Karen Collett, Headteacher.

On the last Wednesday in June the St Mary's School Travel Plan team promoted a healthy lifestyle by organising a Jazzercise session with a Walkers Breakfast. Janey Enticott, Jazzercise instructor, led the session in the playgound where all the children, parents and teachers all joined in. The event was also supported by Orchard View Farm, Little Meadle who provided some of the healthy breakfast.
