Road Safety Week

This week (19th to 25th November 2023) is Road Safety Week. It is a nationwide campaign led by Brake, that focuses on raising awareness about road safety issues. Road Safety Week inspires thousands of communities
to take action on road safety to help ensure that everyone can make safe and healthy journeys every day. Each year, there is a theme, and this year it is ‘Let’s Talk About Speed’.


To mark the week, our School Council have made a video you can view by following the link below.  


We are delighted to have received support from our MP, Steve Baker, and the Mayor of High Wycombe, Cllr Paul Turner. You can also see messages from them supporting our recent work on our TravelWise Week campaign.

Community Support

Zenopa is a Commercial Healthcare Recruitment SME that has been based in Tylers Green for the last 20 years; our company values outline our pledge to be respectful of the wider community and take ownership of our role to initiate positive change.  


At the start of this year, Zenopa started a cycle-to-work scheme, aiming to encourage physical activity among our staff and reduce the cars driving into/ parking in our village. 


To enable the best use and uptake of this scheme, Zenopa provides an electric bike, additional funds for safety equipment, maintenance contracts, and a bike rack on-site to ensure a safe and secure environment. Through the scheme, we have managed to save 4 car parking spaces so far! 


Zenopa pledge to actively work to reduce the number of cars in our village by promoting our current scheme among Zenopa employees, and by extension improve our local community and environment.


We also received support from Kings Ride Supermarket, The Co-operative Food, APS Window Company, JJs Delicatessen, Canny Cafe and The Village Shop.

Our Parking Promise


By signing up to our Parking Promise, you are agreeing to park thoughtfully and safely.  All parents who sign this agreement using our online form will be issued with a Buckinghamshire Council car sticker. These stickers should be displayed in your windscreens to highlight to others that you have agreed to park considerably and to inspire others to do the same. Thank you for helping to keep our children safe and for respecting our community.

Our Walking Bubble Map


The idea behind our Walking Bubble is to create a voluntary car-free zone around our school to encourage everyone who can to 'Get Active' on their journey to and from school. The Bubble should also encourage families that have to travel by car to park at least 5 minutes away from school, creating a safer space for walking, cycling and scooting. Having these restrictions also reduces the number of cars parked on pavements outside and close to our school gates, which is one of the main concerns that parents have when walking to school. Reducing vehicles and creating more space will also make feel safer around school gates. Please support us by using the 5-Minute Walking Bubble.

School Travel Plan Status

Our School Travel Plan (STP) was developed by the whole school community, to promote and facilitate sustainable travel for the school journey. At TGMS, we are passionate about teaching children how they can make positive steps to improve our community. Our STP sets out practical initiatives and measures to encourage active, healthy, safe and sustainable travel as an alternative to single-occupancy car use. It aims to enhance the environment for the local community.


We are currently the proud holders of a Bronze Travel Award, but hope to improve further this year!


Living Streets

We are part of the Living Streets initiative.  This is a walk-to-school, pupil-led challenge where the children self-report how they travel to school each day. If they travel sustainably, (walk, cycle or scoot) at least once a week for a month, they will be rewarded with a badge. There is a different badge for each month and this year’s theme is The British Nature Walk.


For those unable to walk to school, you can Park and Stride to help your child earn their Living Streets WOW badge. If you park at least five minutes away from school, your child will earn their monthly badge.  In order to help parents with this, we have a bubble map to show you a 5-minute walking distance from school.

Clean Air Day 2023

Still image for this video
The children really enjoyed creating a huge chalk drawing to mark Clean Air Day 2023. We thought about ways we could improve the quality of our air and what our world would be like if we could get rid of air pollution! We hope you like it!

Street Smart: Our Road Safety Song!


Inspired by Road Safety Week 2022, the children worked together to write a song about staying safe on the roads around school and promoting active travel. We then recorded all our classes singing the song and had it professionally mixed to share with everybody.  This is Street Smart- we hope you enjoy it!
