Walking Bus


The Parklands Community Primary Walking Bus was introduced in 2013 to improve punctuality at school. Since 2013, the Parklands Walking Bus has gone from strength to strength. The bus operates every school day in all weathers! Due to the pandemic, we are not able to operate the Walking Bus, but plan to bring it back as soon as we can.

The Parklands Walking Bus has enabled us to sustain improvements to punctuality. It also offers an opportunity for the school to promote healthy lifestyles and regular exercise.

The bus leaves school at 8.15am and collects children from ‘bus stops’ in the area surrounding the school. There is no need to book a space on the bus – pupils simply wait at the nearest bus stop with their parents until the bus arrives. Children from Nursery to Year six are welcome on the bus.

A map showing the Parklands bus stops is available from the school office and via the school website.
