Dear Parents and Carers,
We are delighted to let you know that we will be taking part in the Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel 2023 which will be taking place from the 20th – 31st March across the United Kingdom. The Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel inspires pupils to make active journeys to school. Currently there are almost 750,000 pupils registered to take part!
On each day of the challenge, we will compete against other large primary schools with the aim of getting a high percentage of our pupils to make an active journey to school. Pupils will log their daily trips via the Sustrans website. Our best five days will be used to determine our final position.
Aside from the health benefits of being more active and improving the air quality around our school, we will also be entered into daily prize draws if over 15% of pupils make an active journey to school. There are some amazing prizes to be won. You can see these prizes on the Sustrans website https://bigwalkandwheel.org.uk/prizes
Overall winners will be picked at the end of the challenge and will receive an exclusive framed Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel Certificate 2023.
We would appreciate parent/carer support with this initiative where possible. We will also be sharing some additional information and posters via the school website in the lead up to the event.
