The Big Pedal
From 25th March - 5th April, we are going to be encouraging as many pupils to cycle or scoot to school as possible. The Big Pedal is the UK’s largest inter school cycling and scooting challenge that inspires pupils, staff and parents to choose two wheels for their
journey to school. Powered by Sustrans and funded by the Bike Hub, the 2019 challenge is open to individual classes as well as whole schools. On each day of the challenge we will try to record the greatest number of pupils, staff and parents cycling or scooting to school. Our school’s best five days will determine our final position, but we will aim to log journeys on all ten days. To recognise the efforts of the pupils we will be hosting various cycling events over the two weeks.

Havering Catering Services
Week beginning 18th March is week 3 on the Havering catering Services menu. All meals are served with unlimited salad and vegetables and cost £2.20.
