WOW – The Walk to School Challenge Since our successful launch in late January, we have been amazed how many children are travelling sustainably to school. Children will either walk, scoot, ride or park and stride to school twice a week to earn a badge! We track travel each day to ensure capture as many sustainable journeys as we can. The campaign is run by Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking.
Clean Air Scooter Challenge

Between Monday 13th to Friday 17th June we participated in the Clean Air Scooter Challenge. Scooting is fun as well as being great exercise and children can always scoot from the boot! Reminder, please walk with your scooter once you get onto school grounds. Over the course of the week, 67% of children travelled to school without the use of a car which raised to an amazing 90%  with the sustainable travel option of park and stride. This commitment will have contributed to cleaner air around the school gates! Feel free to read this clean air book A Wild Walk to School with your child.
