Pupils Walk To School To Celebrate National Week

Primary pupils from across the borough will be pounding the pavements next week as part of National Walk to School week.

Walking is a brilliant way to get active, it’s also a great opportunity for children to learn vital road safety skills, and make sure they’re alert and ready to learn at the start of the school day. 

Walk to School Week is part of a national campaign celebrating the benefits of walking and this dedicated week is the perfect time to give walking a go.

Dudley Council’s road safety and travel awareness team is co-ordinating the week in a bid to encourage both children and adults to find a more sustainable way to travel. All primary schools in the borough have been sent resources to help and encourage their pupils to find an alternative way of travelling to school, whether on foot, by cycling, or by ‘park and striding’ their way to school. 

Alan Lunt, strategic director for the place directorate, said:

““This fun and exciting campaign aims to demonstrate how walking is healthy, green, and fun and can help address problems related to road safety, obesity, pollution, and congestion.”
