WALKING AND STAYING ACTIVE DURING LOCKDOWN.
To help keep children active and engaged, we will be publishing updates, news, and free weekly resources and activities for children ages 4-11.
Schools in Scotland will re-open on 11th August. In the meantime, we will be updating this page with news and resources to help children stay active during lockdown.

Walk to School Week (1)
Walk to School Week is designed to offer primary school pupils a burst of walking activity.
Month-long Walking Challenge
Help primary school pupils start to feel the benefits of regular activity by taking part in our month-long challenge.
It’s been proven that children who do some form of exercise, especially a walk before school, do better in class because they arrive refreshed, fit and ready to learn.
During peak morning traffic times, one in five cars on the road are taking children to school, contributing to congestion, air pollution and carbon emissions.
There are lots of ways we can help get you and your family walking.
Sign up for our tailored emails and we can help make walking safer and easier in your neighbourhood, and get more children at your kids’ school walking.
If you want to talk to us about getting more children walking to school, just drop us a line.
