We have recently set up a new Park and Stride scheme in Rotherham.

The Park and Stride sees families park away from the school gates and walk, wheel, cycle or scoot the rest of the way. It’s a great way for families to get active, whilst reducing congestion, road danger and air pollution at the school gates.

This Park and Stride has been set up with the local Aldi. Aldi is keen to support the local community and help more families walk to school.

Check out our short video from the launch day, when we were joined by Sarah Jones from Team GB, our mascot Strider, and over 80 families, pupils and staff from Aston Fence Junior and Infant School.
