The commute to and from school is an ideal opportunity to encourage children to be active. This could include walking, jogging, scooting and riding bikes. Schools can play a key role in promoting and organising schemes to inspire children and families to be active while commuting.
Sustrans have produced a PDF that sets out the benefits of active travel. Their website also provides further ideas, inspiration and programmes you can get involved in as a school.
The British Heart Foundation have produced a pack for primary schools to promote active travel. It includes ideas for promoting walking to school and motivating young people to walk to school. Download the pack here.
