Dear Parent/Guardian,

As you may or may not be aware, Friday 27th January is Parent Mental Health Day, a day where parent mental health and wellbeing can be recognised and celebrated.

We all know that moving and keeping active is key to our physical health, but it is proven to be massively beneficial to mental health too. Having a family and a busy work life can often get in the way of parent mental well-being. Therefore, the UK’s leading active travel charity, Sustrans, has decided to provide a led bike ride and walk experience for parents during the school day. These rides will be led by a local Sustrans officer.

These led bike rides will start at the Purbeck School, and we will cycle on to RSPB Arne, where we will have a mindful walk around a part of the reserve, stop off in the café for a drink (and perhaps a slice of cake too!), and then head back to the school. You will also get a free bike safety check before we head out to ensure that your bike is roadworthy and safe to ride.

These rides will be held on:

Tuesday 24th January 09:30am-12pm

Wednesday 25th January 09:30am-12pm

Meeting point: Outside the school entrance/reception

Timings are approximate and depending on the group we may finish slightly before or after these times. The terrain is flat and will all be on tarmacked and quiet roads. All types of cycles are suitable for this ride.

A link to the route can be found here:

The rides free of charge, however we ask that you please complete the form at the bottom of the letter and please send it to to say that you will be attending the ride. Please also fill in the photography consent form if you are happy for your photo to be taken during the event and send this too.

We hope to see you there! Celebrating parent mental well-being and taking time away from busy life and getting outside is often the best remedy when everything gets too much.
