WOW is having a big impact, delivering strong results from small investments around the country.
Because WOW rewards pupils for walking to school they love taking part and before they know it they've formed a life-long healthy habit. What sets WOW apart from other active travel schemes is that the activity takes place before and after school. Meaning it doesn't affect your school's learning schedule and at the same time it combats parking and congestion problems, and improves air quality around the school gates.
From only £1.50 per pupil per year (for an average school of 270 pupils) WOW is a simple and cost-effective way of encouraging pupils to travel actively to school.
If you have an active PTA you can work with them to raise funds to run WOW. If not we've given you some tips on how to raise the money yourself through partnerships or by hosting an event. You'll also find a few resources to give your event a WOW spin.

The PE and Sport Premium funding for schools has doubled to £10 per pupil, per year. This premium can be used to fund WOW, a multi-solution activity that is easy, fun and effective.
Local businesses are often looking for opportunities to make a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of people in their community.
