TRAVEL TO WORK
TRAVEL TO SCHOOL
The journey to and from school provides a good opportunity to introduce walking and cycling into a child's day, or to increase confidence in using public transport.
Walking, cycling or riding the bus together can give you valuable time with your children without the distraction of driving and parking, and can help children control their weight and blood pressure, as well as performing better at school.
Rethink the school run
Walking to school
There are a number of schools within walking distance of Lindley Moor Meadows, displayed on the map below.
The range of journey times below relate to fast and slow walking speeds.
Cycling to School
Huddersfield New College and Salendine Nook High School are both a 5 minute cycle via Crosland Road and Burniston Drive as shown on the map above. On busier roads children can walk with their bikes on the pavement if they are not yet confident on the road.
Go to cyclestreets to plan your cycling route from Lindley Moor Meadows to your child's school.
Riding with your child is a good way to exercise for yourself and accustom children to cycling on the roads. Advice on cycling with children of primary school age can be found on the Cycling UK website.
Taking the bus to school
Those eligible for free transport to school include:
Check out the school transport page of the Kirklees Council website to see if your child qualifies.
