Better health,
cleaner air,
Time to think

Walking to school isn't just a great boost for our environment and a way to tackle congestion, it also prepares young minds for the day ahead - and can set a habit worth keeping long into adulthood. 

 

 

Parents and carers

If you’re a parent or carer there are lots of ways we can help get your and your family walking.

Our Family Walk to School Kit is designed to help parents, carers and children make the walk to school work for them.

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 morning peak traffic times, one in five cars on the road are taking children school, contributing to congestion, air pollution and carbon emissions.

Cleaner air

The school run alone is responsible for generating two million tonnes of CO2 per year. Imagine what we could achieve if we began converting some of these rides to strides?
