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.

Why the Walk to School matters

Happier children

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.

Less congestion

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.

Cleaner air

In the UK, the school run alone is responsible for generating half a million tonnes of CO2 per year (which is more than some small countries!). Imagine what we could achieve if we began converting some of these rides to strides?

Parents and carers

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.
