Active Travel for Schools

Encouraging more walking, cycling and scooting to and from school has lots of advantages for everyone involved. It can help reduce congestion and parking issues around schools, improve mental and physical health and wellbeing in both children and parents, and reduce carbon emissions from car journeys.  

Warwickshire’s primary schools can sign up, free of charge, to a Safe and Active Schools programme. Participating schools will receive: 

  • A tailored road safety session, either in class or online, for every year group from Reception through to Year 6 
  • An additional digital resource each term linking with National Road Safety campaigns. These resources will combine road safety education messages with active travel promotion. 
  • A digital animation each term 
  • Access to Warwickshire County Council’s popular Cars and Kids Don’t Mix campaign 
  • Access to Warwickshire County council’s Cars Idling campaign. 

Schools will also be supported by dedicated Safe and Active Travel officers who will work with them to reduce the number of car journeys being made at school drop off and pick up; encourage walking, cycling, scooting and other sustainable travel options; and work with the school to promote the environmental and health benefits of being active on our journeys.
