Walk to School Week encourages families to walk to school, rather than relying on driving.

By giving up the car for 1 week, the campaign encourages pupils to think about:

  • the health benefits of walking
  • the environmental benefits of reduced car use
  • road safety awareness

Children, parents and teachers can get more information and advice from Living Streets: Walk To School.
