As a school we have signed up to the ‘Living Streets’ campaign to encourage children and their families to walk in.
The following is a statement taken from the Living Streets website:
A generation ago, 70% of us walked to school – now it’s less than half.
We want to reverse this decline. We want children to be energised and empowered, and to make walking to school their natural choice.
As part of this campaign we take part in the following challenge:
WOW - THE YEAR-ROUND WALK TO SCHOOL CHALLENGE
Pupils record how they get to school on the WOW Travel Tracker and those who walk once per week for a month are rewarded with a themed badge.
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.
And together with our free monthly curriculum-aligned learning resources and assembly presentations, WOW will help develop healthy lifelong habits.
We do understand that this is not possible for some families and in that case we ask that you park considerably on drop off and collection.
