WOW - Let's Walk To School

As a school we are taking part in a scheme called WOW in years 1-6 which is to encourage our children and families to walk to school more often. In  Reception our children are taking part in a scheme called 'Little Feet'.

This page will be regularly updated with all the statistics of how our school community is travelling to school.


I wanted to say a HUGE thank you for supporting our two new initiatives Walk Once a Week and Little Feet in Reception.

The usual car chaos around school in the morning seems to have lessened which is positive. The children have been really enjoying recording their trips on the computer and seeing which classes have the most active transport modes.

Since we started back in the first week so far the statistics are from Y1-Y6:

5327 active trips - walking, scooting, bike, park and stride and hop off

937 car trips

This is really positive and is having an impact, thank you!

Next week we will start awarding badges for January. Children will get a badge if they have 'walked once a week' during the 4 weeks in January.

Thank you for your continuing support.

Mr Nik Smith
