International Walk to School Month

image description

October is International Walk to School Month. Each year, primary school pupils from across the UK join forces with children in more than 40 countries worldwide to celebrate the benefits of walking to school.

This International Walk to School Month we are asking parents and carers to share their experience of walking to school and help their children create their own memories.

What do you remember? The sense of independence, chatting to friends, jumping in crunchy autumn leaves?

81% of parents with primary school aged children walked to school but today this has almost halved with now only 47% of primary school children walking to school.

We want to see more children walking to school so that they too can have great memories. Already we’ve had thousands of people like you supporting our campaign.

Sign our petition to David Cameron and help make the walk to school safer and easier.
