Travel Plan

West Blatchington Primary & Nursery School is situated in Hangleton Way, Hove with the South Downs to the north and the residential area of Hangleton to the south. The majority of pupils live within 1 mile of the school, although there are some pupils who travel from other areas across the city.   

The school has two covered bike and scooter storage areas that store approximately 20 bicycles and 15 scooters, but as the school is situated at the top of a very steep hill only a handful of staff and pupils choose this mode of transport.  There is also a covered buggy park for families to use, which supports them with walking to school.

Walking to school

We encourage everyone to walk to school where possible.  If you live a little too far away to walk, please consider parking a 5-10 minutes away and then walking the final section – this is not only helps to keep our roads safer but is good exercise for the family.

Walking zones
