This half term year 5 pupils of Birchfield have the opportunity to take part in Bikeability provided by The Active Wellbeing Society (TAWS). Bikeability is a cycle training program for all levels, from complete beginners who want to learn to ride, to more experienced cyclist who want cycle more often, on or off the road. TAWS delivers Bikeability sessions all year round in schools and local community settings. The program is completely free for both adults and children. If you would like to find out more information on local opportunities, please see the link below.

There is no charge.
I have written to parents several times previously regarding parking and the use of the roads around school during drop off and collections. Unfortunately, we continue to have persistent inconsiderate and/or dangerous parking on the roads around school and this is concerning for other pedestrians and drivers as well as local residents. Irresponsible parking places children and adults in danger.
Recently you will have seen Traffic Enforcement Officers outside of the school. Enforcement officers are deployed by the council to ensure that parking restrictions are being adhered to and Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) may be issued where this is not the case.
The following actions are inconsiderate and dangerous, presenting risks to our children:
- Pulling into or blocking the entrance to a driveway- emergency vehicles and other traffic need access
- Parking on yellow lines or zig-zags near to the school entrances
- Parking on the pavements, across dropped kerbs or obstructing residents’ driveways
- Stopping in the middle of the road to drop off a child, even for a few seconds
The Birchfield staff are outside every day to support the safe arrival and collection of our pupils on site. Please support us by demonstrating courtesy and consideration for local residents and for the safety and wellbeing of our pupils and families as they arrive and leave school.
