About Our Club

South End Infant School’s Stride to School Club 

Our Stride to School Club is a voluntary initiative co-ordinated by South End Infant School Staff and Governing Body.  It operates in line with the tried and tested principles of other‘Walking Bus’ initiatives that have been successfully implemented elsewhere in the country.

Children are dropped off by their parents or carers on a Friday morning and accompanied to school by our volunteer ‘Strider Supervisors’. All children are provided with a high-viz jacket to wear; the infants also receive a sticker when they arrive at school.

Our route has been risk assessed by Northamptonshire County Council’s Road Safety & Sustainability department and is fully insured.

Strider Supervisors
