'Walk once a Week' (WoW)
We re-launched the WoW (Walk once a Week) scheme in November 2022 to promote healthier, more environmentally friendly, travel to and from school. Travelling sustainably also helps to reduce parking congestion outside our school and on the local roads.
This is a scheme delivered by Living Streets, the UK charity for everyday walking.
WoW encourages children and families to walk to school at least once a week.
How does it work
Children record how they travel to school each day on the interactive WoW Travel Tracker in class. At the end of each month, children who walk (cycle, scoot or Park and Stride) at least once every week will receive a collectable badge. A new badge can be earned each month.
What if we can't walk all the way to school
We understand that it might not be possible for everyone to walk the whole way to school, but why not 'Park and Stride' - that is, park the car further away from the school, and walk (cycle or scoot) the last part of the journey.
Let's swap those school runs for school walks!
