congratulations! you did it!

Thank you and well done for taking part in Walk to School Week 2017! We hope you and your pupils enjoyed it and felt the benefits of walking.

We would love to hear how you got on! If you are happy to share your school's experience, please contact us at and share your story.

We also had over 300 schools wearing their happy shoes for our free fundraiser, Happy Shoesday, this year! The money raised will go towards walking projects all over the UK.

Save the date: next year's Walk to School Week is 14-18 May 2018


Walk to School Week

Have you enjoyed Walk to School Week 2017?

If you’ve enjoyed walking to school this week, get in touch with the team at Living Streets about our longer term walk to school initiative, WOW.

After one year of taking part in WOW we generally find...

30% fewer cars at gates of participating schools, reducing congestion  

23% more children walking to school. 

£1.50 per pupil per year is all it costs to run and can now be funded with your Sport Premium. 

Rate your walk to school

We need parents, guardians, teachers and pupils to help us paint a picture of the state of our walk to school up and down the UK by rating their walk. The more ratings we get, the more we know.

Our nifty mobile-friendly tool is easy to use - plus all entrants in May go in the hat for a family city break.
