Wyburns Primary School, Rayleigh

Wyburns had 209 pupils in 2017-18, who lived 1,168 metres on average from the school. However, half lived within 659m, suggesting a majority could walk to school

In 2017, 50% of pupils walked to school, with another 7% scooting and 10% ‘park-and-striding’, whereby they park a distance from the school and walk the rest

Wyburns have been extremely creative with schemes to encourage more active travel to school, having in-school competitions, installing a scooter pod, recording videos and staging “bikers breakfasts”, where a local supermarket provides food for pupils who scoot or cycle to school.
