Primary schools

image description

We have a range of resources available to support primary schools.

Our main scheme is called Walk once a Week (WoW), which encourages over 450,000 children to walk at least once a week. In return, they earn a collectable badge every month, designed by children themselves.

We also run initiatives during Walk to School Week in May, and International Walk to School Month in October.

Walk once a Week

The Walk once a Week (WoW) scheme has been running since 2005. Today, it helps over 300,000 children get walking across the UK.
