TRAVEL TO SCHOOL
The journey to and from school provides a good opportunity to introduce walking and cycling into a child's day, or to increase confidence in using public transport.
Walking, cycling or riding the bus together can give you valuable time with your children without the distraction of driving and parking, and can help children control their weight and blood pressure, as well as performing better at school.
