London pupils have been marking London Climate Action Week (26 June – 4 July 2021) by taking to the streets for a special walk to school.
Pupils at Bevington Primary School have been walking to school to help improve local air quality. They were joined this week (28 June) by Lord Michael Bates for a special walk to school to celebrate the strides they’re making to reduce air pollution and get active on the school run.
Bevington Primary recently joined thousands of pupils across the UK for Living Streets’ Walk to School Week.
Families were encouraged to walk, cycle, scoot or ‘Park and Stride’ for the whole week to see the big differences that come from small steps, from healthier and happier children to fewer cars outside the school gates.
There's a real buzz at Bevington about walking to school. Pupils feel the benefits of walking to school for their own health and improving the air quality of their local environment.
