Walking to school

WOW rewards primary school pupils who walk to school at least once a week with a monthly collectible badge.

That's one year, eleven badges. What's even better is that the badges are designed by pupils in our annual badge design competition and made in the UK from recycled yoghurt pots.

It's simple to run, fun and easy to take part. Just a few minutes of a teacher's day is all it takes to make a big difference, logging journeys and awarding badges. 

By signing up for our new & improved interactive Travel Tracker, teachers can securely record pupils' travel modes throughout the year.

And together with our free monthly curriculum-aligned learning resources and assembly presentations, WOW will help develop healthy lifelong habits.
