This event encourages families with primary school age children to experience the benefits of active travel between home and school, by walking, cycling, scooting or skating to school with other families on this one morning early in the first term.
To participate in the Walk or Wheel Safely to School Day schools need to register before the end of the fourth term. Early in February registered schools will receive a notice about the event for children to take home to their families – one notice per family – and stickers to reward every pupil who travels actively to school on the Walk or Wheel Safely to School Day.
This activity supports the School Travel Planning Programme.
