Our Travel Plan

The Travel Plans at the Preshute School

We have a School Travel Plan to help us:

  • To continuously assess ideas and investigate new options for sustainable transport; involving pupils and parents in the concept and promotions; eg. Walking bus.
  • To reduce the number of car journeys to school by encouraging parents and children to adopt alternative sustainable transport. This will reduce congestion and parking in the village.
  • To increase the number of children using the school bus for the morning journeys.
  • To work with the Wiltshire Council Highways and local residents to ensure that the village is a safe place for parents and children to walk/cycle to and from school.
  • To encourage parents and children to consider the healthy choice of transport to school.
  • To improve the children’s knowledge of personal safety when walking and cycling e.g. Teaching Road safety, Walk Safe and Bikeability.
  • To incorporate the School Travel Plan into the School Development Plan.
  • To improve access to the school for parents dropping off and collecting their children.
  • To encourage staff to consider more sustainable transport where possible (this may be difficult as many staff live far from the school).

The High Street in Manton is very narrow outside the school and there is no on-site parking.

Please would parents travelling to school by car:

  • Stick to the unofficial one-way system we operate during school drop off and pick up times, so that they enter Manton High Street via the A4 (near the pedestrian crossing) and exit via Clatford.
  • Park with consideration for our neighbours - please do not block driveways and entrances to houses in the village.
  • Not do a u-turn in the High Street.
  • Not park in the area designated as a bus stop.
  • Use the "pupil drop off point" in the morning in front of the school entrance where possible.

There is no staff parking so visitors will need to allow time to park and walk to the school.

Walking and Bus

Many of our children walk to school which helps ease traffic in the village of Manton. There is also a service bus - contact the school office for details.


A number of our children cycle to school and there are bike racks outside the main doors.
