Resources for primary schools

Transition resources

To help schools support families and pupils with the transition to a new school there are a range of resources for new parents and carers and pupils. Whether beginning in Year R, moving on to Year 3 at junior school or starting secondary school there is some useful information on our Hampshire Transition Time page, as well as supporting promotional packs for schools to use with each year group.

'How Could You Travel to School?' booklet


Each year infant, junior and primary schools are sent copies of the 'How Could You Travel to School?' booklet to give to their new Year R or Year 3 parents and carers. The booklet has been produced to provide Hampshire parents and carers with a practical guide about safer, active and sustainable travel to school. It contains information and tools to help them plan their journey and find out the options available when their children start a new school.

Each year we invite children to enter the "How could you travel to school?" drawing competition. This year we’re asking children to draw what they may have seen or heard on their journey to school that brings them joy. Please tell parents and carers about the competition, details can be found in the back of the booklets.

Scooter Training

Train your Year R to Year 4 pupils how to ride their scooters safely with our scooter training guidelines for teachers. It aims to enable teaching staff to teach pupils how to scoot safely during the school day e.g. during a school PE lesson and more importantly on their journey to school. For those interested in Balanceability, there is more information on the Balanceability website.

 

Create a 'Travel to our school' webpage

Our toolkit to help you create a 'travel to our school' webpage has been designed to provide you with content you could make available to pupils and parents to guide them on how they could travel to school.

Adding this information to your ‘parents page’, ‘contact page’ or ‘how to find us’ will mean they have alternative ways to travel to school instead of by car to help reduce congestion and pollution at the school gate and keep everyone fitter and healthier. There are some great examples of what other schools are doing too. Updated for 2021.

 

The Parkwise Promise
