Thank you to everyone who got involved!
Throughout October, we asked people to consider the contribution that traffic pollution makes to climate change and the effects it has on wildlife and natural habitats around the world.
By walking to school, we reduce our carbon emissions, supporting natural habitats and animals across the globe.
We received over 100 entries on social media!
Words from a teacher at Lea Forest Academy
'The Walk To School Month challenge allowed us to focus our efforts on helping to reduce our impact on the environment and allowed the children to research endangered animals and their habitats, every class took part in our walking champions competition and shared images of the children walking or using alternative methods of transport to get to school.
We have seen a huge increase [in active travel] during this month and have awarded the highest number of Badges and our children have really enjoyed researching their chosen animals [..]. The families that did give use feedback commented on the noticeable lack of traffic around the school in the mornings and that their child enjoyed collecting badges, stickers and certificates.'
