A Safer Journey to School

This guide for schools on travel plans takes account of our integrated transport policy to reduce car dependency, particularly for short journeys. It also builds upon the many good practices already in place in schools up and down the country. Safer Routes to School is the centerpiece of the Government's transport proposals for schools and the key to turning the practical steps in this guidance into action on the ground.

Activity Ideas: Walk to School Day, Week, Year-round

Walk to School - Some events begin with students walking together in a "walking school bus" group with parents, celebrities and dignitaries leading the way. Other activities include safety fairs, bike rodeos, poster contests, and meetings for parents. In some communities events are designed so families can complete walkability checklists along their usual route, permitting parents to teach safety skills to children.
