During specific weeks, for example 'Walk to School Week', and on most Fridays in the summer term, we operate a walking bus. This is where children meet in Nethermill, and those who have traveled on the bus from further away get off. We then walk the mile along to school. The children wear fluorescent tabards and are accompanied by staff and volunteer parents.


We are recognised as a 'Cycle Friendly School' by Cycling Scotland and we value cycling highly. We organse several events in a year revolving around cycling. As well as cycling proficiency, which many schools organise, we develop cycle skills with the assistance of 'Stepping Stanes' . This involves work controlling the cycle on the playground for the youunger children, moving on to the school field and the cycling tracks at Ae and Mabie forests for the older children. We also organise a 'cycle bus' several times a year, with children able to join at Parkgate, Lambholm, Gamerigg and Nethermill. Most children participate in these rides.
