Travelling to school

As part of our planning permission to use the Lanchester building for the Lanchester and Ascot Road Community Free Schools, we require an individual travel plan from each family.


There is no parking and no drop-off available at the Lanchester building for children who come by car. We are therefore encouraging every child to arrive by an environmentally friendly mode of transport, such as walking, scooting, cycling or bus. This supports not only the environment, but promotes a healthy lifestyle. There will be a place for your child to leave their scooter or bike, and the school will include a focus on road safety in the curriculum to support you.


In time, with the support of the parents, we will be introducing walking buses and other programmes which will encourage the children to walk, scoot or cycle to school.
