Walk to School Week is 15-19 May 2017.

Join thousands of children across the country celebrating the benefits walking brings.

We know that walking to school makes children feel healthier and happier, while reducing congestion and pollution outside the school gates. Yet less than half of primary school children currently walk to school.

We want to reverse this decline and see every child that can, walk to school.

Get your school walking with our challenge packs

Our Walk to School Week 2017 challenge packs are perfect to further encourage children to give walking a go this May.

This year’s challenge will take pupils on an imaginary journey from the dramatic skylines of the city, via rolling countryside, to charming coastal areas.

Each day, activities and games will enable pupils to explore key features of each environment, whilst also enjoying the many benefits of a daily walk to school.

Happy Shoesday

On the Tuesday of Walk to School Week, primary school pupils, parents and teachers across the country raise money for our walking projects, by wearing their happy shoes and donating £1.

Shiny, decorated, colourful, cartoon, gorilla feet - whatever brings that smile on their walk to school.

Register your school and we will send you a free fundraising pack, plus all sorts of fun materials to help make running the day a big success.
