Healthy school committee includes pupils, parents, governors and teachers. It promotes healthy eating and exercise through activities such as: the alligator, walk to school and share a healthy breakfast.
The JSA kindly arranges for pupils to have the choice of hot lunches on Wednesdays and Fridays.
School travel plan committee
As part of the school’s work towards our School Travel Plan, our Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs) encourage children to be aware of their safety on the roads. They organise events, such as Olympic Sport Star Day, where pupils dressed as a sports star to raise awareness of road safety.
Walk to School
Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs):
The Junior Road Safety Officers are responsible for running our road safety campaigns, Be Bright Be Seen sales, Walk to School campaigns and our Go for Gold Scheme. They are appointed after interviews held by the previous JRSOs at the end of term. We will soon be announcing our JRSOs for 2021!
Keep watching this page to hear from them!
Sustainable Travel to School:
We would like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who have travelled sustainably to school, whether this is by walking, scooting or cycling. It would be fantastic if we could get even greater numbers travelling to school sustainably this year! Travelling to school sustainably is good for the environment, fitness levels and our health – even once a week can make a difference! Remember, using our park and stride scheme counts as travelling to school sustainably and is a great first step.
Mode Shift Stars:
We are pleased to announce that, after reviewing our travel plan actions and achievements for 2018-19, Mode Shift Stars have awarded us the Silver National Travel Award. We will continue to try and improve our travel plan actions and go for gold!
Dates for the Diary:
19th April – 30th April 2021 – The Big Pedal.
17th – 21st May 2021 – Walk to School week.
We are very pleased to be able to offer a Park & Stride facility at Holmer Green Junior School.
As you can see from the ‘Go For Gold Exclusion Zone’ we have agreements in place with various proprietors at points of interest, where parents can park their cars and walk their child to the school.
The links below will show the local bus timetables and routes and there is also a link for Chiltern Railways;
If you require any further information regarding the Park & Stride facility, please feel free to ask in the school office.
Go for Gold
The school actively participates in the Walk to School scheme. We will be using the travel tracker and restarting the ‘walk in Wednesdays’ and also taking part in ‘Footstep Fridays’ after the Easter break.
