Walk to School Week is a five-day walking challenge in which children are rewarded for walking, wheeling, cycling or scooting to school every day of the week. During the challenge they share their experiences with classmates through our interactive activity packs.

Across the week, we also walked to school with some very special guests, including Dame Sarah Storey, the Mayors of West YorkshireWest Midlands and the Sheffield City Region, not to forget our extra special mascot, Strider!

We were overjoyed to see more schools joining in than ever before. Thanks to additional funding provided by the Department for Transport, we were able to reach

Over 1,000 schools!

WTSW feedback

"The children enjoyed receiving the stickers as a daily reward but really looked forward to choosing a badge at the end of the week. We filled in the diaries every morning during registration."

"A full range of activities to engage KS1 and KS2 children. Having an extra badge was a huge bonus for our school. It was very engaging for the children and really easy to use."

"We thought it was fantastic! Children loved it, resources were well thought out and engaging."

"We loved the superhero theme and how it supported the reasons behind walking to school."

"It was brilliant and the superhero theme was really fun to work with and grabbed their attention."
