Walk to School
We are very fortunate that St Giles Primary School is situated in a beautiful rural setting.The school is accessed via Church Lane, a country lane without pavements and few parking opportunities.
Many of our pupils live in the village and are able to walk to school.
We ask that those who live further afield, and have to drive, park their cars in Horsted Keynes village (there is public car park next to the village Recreation Ground), and then walk the rest of the way to school.
This takes an extra five minutes, however we see huge benefits in terms of pupil safety, and the pleasure of a 5-minute walk is really worth it.
In the morning and after school it is a real pleasure seeing pupils walking up and down the road, chatting away; in our busy world this is rare and we are trying to preserve it.
