Walk to school week is taking place the week commencing 17th to 21st May. Is your local school taking part? If not, can your child take part and set yourself your own challenge? It doesn’t necessarily have to be walking, it could be cycling or scooting too!
By introducing sustainable travel patterns at a young age, children are more likely to keep these up throughout their life. Even if you need your car to travel for an onwards journey, could you drop your child off a little further away from the school as this reduces congestion and air pollution at the school gates, as well as improving road safety.
