Your walking bus needs you!

With the better Spring weather (hopefully) approaching the parent/carer led walking bus is looking for more volunteers to  expand the number of routes and places available to pupils. 


You may have seen the Abbotshall group walking to school with a team of parent helpers.  It is a great way for pupils to start the day, while getting some exercise and chatting with friends. It can also help reduce the volume of traffic around the school at drop off time. 


There are currently 4 routes risk assessed, Abbotshall, Lower Bieldside, Upper Bieldside and Hillview Park & Stride, and you can look at all the route maps on the website. It would be great to get them all up and running during March, but we need your help!  Even volunteering one morning a week would make a big difference.

Email the team at if you have any questions.


Information Evening - Monday 12th September

Following on from the successful taster sessions in June, the Cults Primary Walking Bus is looking for more volunteers in order to start running at the end of September.  


There will be an information evening on Monday 12th September, 7.30pm - 9.30pm at Cults Primary School.  The first half of the night will be an introduction to the walking bus, and the second half will be specifically about volunteering and  some training.


Email the team at if you have any questions.


Lovely to be back!

Thank you to everyone who took part in our Hillview and Abbotshall taster sessions. It was lovely to see groups of children walking into the playground with their hi-viz jackets on.  We hope to get fully back up and running, on all our routes, as quickly as possible after the new term starts in August.  We are also looking for new volunteers and will be running training sessions in the new term.  To sign up please email us at
