Morley Victoria is committed to promoting sustainable travel; therefore, we encourage pupils, parents and staff to travel to school by foot, scooter, or bus. This approach has many benefits: reduced congestion, making the roads around school safer, the health benefits of regular exercise and reduced pollution. Where car journeys are necessary, we encourage people to consider park and stride journeys or car shares.
If you would like to be involved in this work, or have any ideas or expertise to share, please contact the school office.
