Northburn Primary School promotes and encourages active travel to staff and students and encourages them to walk, cycle or use public transport, whenever it is safe and practicable to do so.

By doing this we hope that the roads surrounded by the school will become less congested, and that pupil’s awareness of road safety, particularly during opening and closing, will be improved.

To help staff and pupils to make informed choices about the range of travel options to the school, a range of tools and information is below;

Online Journey Planning

In addition to the leaflets, there is also the Go Smarter Journey Planner. This allows you as a pupil or visitor to the School to plan your journey either by foot, bicycle or public transport and is very easy to use. In order to access it please click on the link below;



Northburn Primary School has a range of freely available cycle and scooter parking for visitors and staff, there is also some covered spaces to ensure that your bicycle or scooter will not get wet, particularly during winter.

In order for you to plan your journey a cycle map is also available. This outlines all of the advisory cycle routes in South East Northumberland, and many of these connect to the school. To download a copy of the map please click on the link below;


Should you wish to request a paper copy of the map, and for other local cycling information please follow the link to Northumberland County Councils website.


Should you have any additional questions or queries about facilities on site, please feel free to contact the school and a member of staff will be able to assist.
