Walk To School

At Hart Plain we are aware of the benefits of walking to school and as a result of this regularly take part in this initiative. We have again signed up for this this year. If you would like further information on this then please use the link at the bottom of this page.

Why walk to school?

Walking to school is well worth it! Below are just some of the reasons:
S = SAFETY TRAINING
Walking regularly with a child from a young age enables them to develop life skills; preparing children with road safety and personal awareness skills.
C = CONGESTION reduction
Fewer cars on our roads is good for the environment and local communities; fewer cars at the school gate can make it safer for pupils making their way to and from school.
H = HEALTH benefits
Walking to and from school allows adults and children to incorporate physical activity into their daily routines.
O = ON the ball at school
Pupils who walk to school arrive wide awake and are therefore more prepared for the school day ahead.
O = OUR fun and friendship
Friends and family can walk to and from school together and enjoy some quality time.
L = LEARNING for life
Walking regularly enables a child to become more familiar with their surroundings and provides them with the opportunity to learn about the weather and changing seasons first hand.
