Well done to Picasso for winning The Big Walk and Wheel 2023 competition. This is an initiative that encourages people to walk, bike, or roll instead of driving a car for short trips. The goal is to promote active transportation and reduce traffic congestion, air pollution, and carbon emissions. Walking and biking are great forms of exercise that can improve physical and mental health. They also help to reduce traffic on the roads, making it safer for pedestrians and cyclists. Additionally, active transportation is an environmentally-friendly alternative to driving, as it reduces greenhouse gas emissions and helps to protect the environment. The Big Walk and Wheel encourages everyone to get involved, regardless of age or ability. It's an opportunity to explore your community on foot or bike, and discover new places you may not have noticed before. It's also a chance to connect with your neighbours, and work together to create a safer and more sustainable community. By participating in the Big Walk and Wheel, we can help to make a positive impact on your health, the environment, and your community. So why not leave your car at home for short trips, and join the movement towards active transportation?

Active Travel

We would like to share with you all that Furness has been awarded a Gold accreditation by TfL in recognition of achievement in sustainable, active, responsible and safe travel. This has only been possible because of your continued support and we would like to say a huge thank you for all your help in promoting active travel within our school community. The role you have been playing has a huge impact in reducing the number of vehicles on the road and that is both good for the environment and our health. Children love cycling and scooting to school which naturally boosts independence, confidence and develops healthy habits for life. We are all feeling very happy and proud for being part of this movement. Thank you.

If your child cycles or scoots to school, they can sign in at the school gate. The most active child from each class will then receive a medal at the end of the academic year and classes receive certificates each term.



Some Furness children have cycling training delivered by qualified cycling instructors from Brent Council. The whole school takes part in school wide initiatives and competitions to promote cycling to school. Cycling is embeded into the PE curriculum and also part of the Multi Skills Activity Club after school. There is also a cycling club after school.

Cycling to school week

Thank you for taking part in the Be Bright be Seen this year. Despite the fun and competitive element, the event aims to increase awareness towards road safety which helps keep our children safe while scooting and cycling. The creativity level was astonishing and children were so happy to share stories of their amazing creations.

Kahlo in year 1 has won the cycle to school week competition this year and received a trophy for being the most active class in school. Once again, thank you parents for encouraging your children to cycle and scoot to school. Together we are all working towards a common goal of educating your children about healthy living, and looking after the environment. 

Active Breaks

Furness Primary school is a very resourceful school and the variety and specificity of the equipment children have got access to during breaks times gives them an enriched and stimulated experience where children can be active and more engaged but also acquire and develop new skills in more infomal and social environment.
