As part of International Walk to School month, Solihull Sustainable Travel team are running an autumn Walk to School Week starting on Monday 16th until Friday 20th October 2023.
Their aim is to challenge families to travel sustainably by walking, scooting, cycling or, for families that live further away, parking at least 5 minutes away from school and walking the remaining journey.
This is an ideal opportunity for all families to engage with this year's Living Streets' Travel Tracker, our national programme for rewarding pupils for travelling actively to school. At present, only 17% of the school population are engaging in it and this is chance to significantly increase that figure.
In the gallery below, you'll see the password for logging on with instructions available in Parents/Sustainable Travel. Below, you'll also be able to view a 5-minute Walking Bubble around school to help you decide how far away vehicle users can park and walk the rest of the way.
It is also a chance to encourage all parents to treat each other with respect and politeness when helpfully pointing out examples of unauthorised parking or vehicle use which doesn't match school expectations, to other parents.
