Information for primary schools on travelling to school sustainably

Primary Schools

Active, healthy and sustainable travel to school

Pick and mix from an exciting line up of tools to get parents, pupils and staff travelling to school in more active, healthy and sustainable ways.

Attached is the Primary Schools STARS 2015 leaflet which outlines the areas where Hampshire County Council's School Travel Planning Team can support your school with active travel. Some activities have limited availability and will generally be allocated on a first come first served basis. Resources may be prioritised for schools who actively engage in increasing use of public transport, cycling, scooting and walking to school, working towards a Modeshift STARS award. For more information about any of these services please contact the School Travel Planning Team on 01962 845638 or

Back to school booklet 2015

When children are starting in Reception, their parent/guardian will be making decisions on how they travel to school, and this routine will often remain throughout the whole of their child’s education at primary school. This is an important time to influence these decisions and so this booklet has been produced to provide parents with the information and tools they need to find out the options available, even if it’s choosing an alternative to the car once a week. Read more here.

October activity -  Walking Five A Day challenge

Why not give our "Walking Five A Day" challenge a go this October? To celebrate International Walking Month this October, My Journey have launched a new "Five A Day" walking challenge. To take part in the challenge, choose a week for walking during October to suit your school calendar. Then, encourage pupils (and tell parents) to complete their "five a day" walking activities for that week and see how easily they can reap the rewards of feeling fitter, healthier and happier. Pupils simply keep track of their progress by ticking off their achievements on the downloadable chart below.

If you would like to sign your school up to the challenge and receive printed copies of the progress chart, please email by Friday 18 September stating how many copies you require (one per child). We will send these out during week commencing 28 September ready for you to use during October, along with a supply of Living Streets badges to reward those who walk.

Help us inspire others and win a prize!

Ask parents to send us a selfie of their family doing one of their five a day (with or without their completed checklist) and they could win some great prizes. Simply upload photos to our Facebook page. For full Terms and Conditions visit here.
