Walk to School Initiative
We wish to encourage more children and their families to use their Burford Body by using sustainable modes of transport, such as walking or cycling, for the school journey. This will help to reduce the number of car trips made to and from school, ease pollution; promote healthier lifestyles; improve cognitive performance and reduce anxiety.
WOW – the walk to school challenge is delivered by Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking, to help as many children as possible experience the benefits of walking to school. The pupil-led challenge enables children to self-report, at school, how they travel every day using the interactive WOW Travel Tracker.
If they walk, cycle, scoot or park-and-stride, at least three times a week for a month, they get rewarded with a badge. It’s that simple!
