At present our school roll sits at 68, with 18 children in our nursery class. The school is situated in a residential area within the village of Coalsnaughton. The majority of our pupils live within our catchment area and are able to walk to school. There is one entrance to the school which is located in our playground area.

What are we already doing? Coalsnaughton Primary School currently participates in the Living Streets WOW Project which is a pupil led initiative, highlighting the importance of healthy routes to school. We also take part in Bikeability on an annual basis and our nursery children participate in Play on Pedals. One of our Junior Leadership Teams in school takes the lead on the Health and Safety in school, particularly around road safety.

Our latest travel survey results from October 2019 We are delighted that the majority of our pupils walk to school and a few use their bicycle to get to school. It is encouraging to see that the majority of parents/carers who took part in our school travel survey use healthy and active ways to travel to and from school. We know that we have some issues in the local area around inappropriate parking and that the area around the school can be particularly congested at peak times.  People park on the zig zag lines.  Some cars go too fast.

Objectives of Our Travel Plan Coalsnaughton Primary School and Nursery Class aim to have healthy and street-smart pupils who can all travel to and from school safely. We want to promote road safety:  Discourage people from parking on the zig zag lines in front of the school.  Investigate a 20mph zone for the main road running through the village. We want to raise awareness:  Keep the local paper aware of work done by the school.  Celebrate our successes.  Publish our travel plan on our website.  Regularly discuss school travel at Parent Council Meeting. Support 

We are very lucky in Coalsnaughton Primary School and Nursery Class. Our teachers and parents/carers all work really hard to help us keep safe on the roads and do their best to make sure we travel to and from school safely. We have also have help from the Community Police.
