We promote walking, cycling or scootering as a healthy way for our students to travel to school. Research shows being active can help students concentrate better and increase their levels of achievement. Being active on their journey to school also helps young people reach the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity a day.
By walking or cycling, our school community can also help reduce the number of vehicles on the road making it safer for pedestrians and cyclists. It also reduces the pollution caused from exhaust fumes helping combat climate change and create cleaner air.
You could also consider park and stride – find a location near to the school and walk from there.
Do you consider certain barriers to travelling actively – consider the following solutions
To increase confidence and skills on a bike, Bikeability is taught to years 5 and 6 in school. For more information contact the school or the instructors directly on email@example.com
