Living Streets for Primary

Who are Living Streets?

Living Streets are the charity for everyday walking. A generation ago, 70% of us walked to school – now it’s less than half so their aim is to create a walking nation, free from congested roads and pollution. And we are working with them to help achieve this on the school run.

How your Primary school can get involved

Badge design competition - Put your pupils’ imagination to work and be in with a chance of their designs being made into WOW badges for next year. Winners will also receive free WOW resources for their school for a whole year.

WOW - the year-round walk to school challenge - WOW rewards primary school pupils who walk to school at least once a week with a monthly collectible badge. It's simple to run, fun and easy to take part and all you need are badges and the travel tracker to monitor and reward your pupils. WOW results in 30% fewer cars at school gates and 23% more children walk after one year of taking part.  

There are a small number of fully funded places currently available on the scheme. If you think your  school could benefit from increasing physical activity and reducing congestion get in touch to find out more.

Happy Shoesday - Happy Shoesday is one day fundraising event that takes place on the Tuesday of Walk to School Week in May each year and encourages children across the UK to walk to school wearing shoes that put a smile on their faces.

Walking Challenges –  Primary schools can take part in five-day on 21st to 25th May and month-long walking challenges, either alongside WOW or as stand-alone activities. The challenges aim to engage pupils and their parents in regular walks to school.  The  five-day walking challenge is designed to offer primary school pupils a burst of walking activity and the month long challenge helps pupils start to feeling the benefits of regular activity.
