Walk to School Week - Monday 15th May to Friday 19th May

We are supporting 'Walk to School Week' from Monday 15th May to Friday 19th May.


How can you help?

  • Walk with your child and discuss potential hazards such as driveways, junctions, parked cars and bends
  • Work out together the safest route even if this involves a slightly longer journey
  • Let your child suggest places to cross and discuss their choice
  • Practice the green cross code on your way to and from school - reminding them to stop, look, listen and think

If you don't have time to walk!

  • Park the car some way from the school gates and walk the last part of the journey
  • Try to find time to walk with them once during the week
  • Your child will qualify for a certificate if either option is taken

What are the advantages of walking?

  • The chance to teach important road safety skills which cannot be taught in a car
  • The chance to learn about the local environment
  • A chance for a chat about the day
  • Less congestion at the school gate
  • A healthier way to start the day
