The walk to school is a great way for children to get active in the mornings. It’s easy, free, accessible and it can be fun too! It’s essential that city leaders make all of our streets, including those around schools, safe places to walk, by installing 20mph speed limits and safety crossings. We know that a lot of parents avoid walking to school because of high levels of traffic outside the school gates. The more of us walking to school, the safer conditions will be, so this week we’re asking families to give walking a go for Walk to School Week.
This Walk to School Week, Living Streets is urging members of the public to rate their walk to school via www.livingstreets.org.uk/rateyourwalk
