The Wookey Walking Bus


One of our core values as Wookey is 'being active' and we therefore promote this value throughout our curriculum. We believe that our curriculum includes everything that we offer and not just things that happen during the normal school day.

At 8:30 am daily, the Wookey Walking Bus starts its journey outside Wookey Hub and it then travels through the village, picking up passengers as it goes. The bus then arrives at school at around 8:45 am.

Passengers on the bus enjoy the positive feeling that an active start to the day gives them, feeling benefits in terms of both physical and mental health.

From February 2020 we have started taking part in WOW - The year-round walk to school challenge, run the the UK charity 'Living Streets'. This will mean that our children will be able to collect monthly badges to reward them for their commitment to walking to school. For more information about Living Streets, click here
