Parents

THINK! Resources for parents of children under 11 years of age

Information for parents about how to help keep children safe on the road and home-link sheets for you to complete with your child related to the classroom activities that your child might have completed in school.

 

This area of the THINK! Education secondary website offers advice for parents on how they can help their children aged 11–16 to be safer on the roads, reinforcing the messages that they may have heard in the classroom.

 

      Living Streets: Walk To School

A generation ago, 70% of us walked to school – now it’s less than half.  Living Streets want to reverse this decline. They want children to be energised and empowered, and to make walking to school their natural choice. And they need your help.

Daily Mile - Children fit for life

The aim of the Daily Mile is to improve the physical, emotional and social health and wellbeing of our children - regardless of age or personal circumstances.

It is a profoundly simple but effective concept, which any primary school can implement. Its impact can be transformational- improving not only the childrens’ fitness, but also their concentration levels, mood, behaviour and general wellbeing.
