Dear Parents/Carers

Please see some key information for our upcoming walk:


Our 10 mile walk will commence at 8am prompt therefore we ask all children to arrive by 7:50am, come in through reception.

Our 7.5 mile walk will commence at 8:10 therefore all children need to arrive by 8:00am, come in through reception.

Our 5 mile walkers can come to school for our usual time of 8:30am, come through normal gates and go straight to the hall.

Breakfast Club will NOT be on. Any issues please let us know.

Packed lunch

All children will require a packed lunch with some additional small snacks that can be eaten along the route for energy. Please ensure your child has plenty of fluids but absolutely no fizzy drinks are allowed.

Sun Cream

Please ensure your child is wearing sun cream before arriving at school and bring additional sun cream to top-up throughout the day (even in cloudy conditions).


There will be an opportunity for all children to purchase an ice-cream along the route so children can bring £2-£3.


Please ensure your child is wearing their Monkton sports top or school jumper, shorts/tracksuit bottoms, sun hat and a pair of comfortable trainers. We recommend trainers which provide adequate comfort and support so Converse/Vans are not the best. Children will be required to carry their own kit throughout the day so a bag with two shoulder straps would be most beneficial. Children to also bring a light, waterproof coat in the event of rain.


Hopefully you have started to collect sponsorships using the sponsor form your child brought home last week. We will not be collecting sponsor money in until after we have completed the walk


All expected to be back at school and leave at normal time of 3pm. Updates will be provided by text if needed.


If you have any questions, contact the school office or email Miss Sheriff on [email protected]

Many thanks.
