Increasing active travel to school is a step-by-step guide to increase walking, cycling and scooting on the school journey.
How it works
Designed for teachers, parents and governors, the guide contains a suggested programme and top tips for events, activities and lessons to inspire more journeys by foot, bike or scooter.
The programme stages include:
- Getting Started
- Raising Awareness
The programme is designed to be delivered over six weeks (though you can take longer if you wish) culminating in a celebratory week of action – a perfect build up to the Big Shift challenge, a Bike to School Week, or even our annual Big Pedal event.
Read how one school successfully used the guide to reduce car use in just six weeks.
