You will find information and files to download for our most up to date resources which can provide a fun way to encourage active travel on the school run.

Walk to School Week - 20-24 May 2019

Walk to School Week is the Living Streets initiative which invites children and parents from around the UK to unite for one week of walking to school.

To mark the celebration, we've teamed up with Go Jauntly - our new walking app partner - to help you encourage families at your school to take part. Download our poster and share around school to get families inspired.

The Go Jauntly walking app is available to download nationally and supports people to get active through a collection of inspiring walks, including routes across Southampton. Click here to find out more and discover local routes and tailored walking challenges.

Walktober

The My Journey team encourage schools to take part in International Walking Month each October. For details on our latest “Walktober” initiative please visit the Walktober page.

Travel to school website page toolkit

This toolkit has been designed to provide you with content you could make available to pupils and parents to guide them on how they could travel to school. Adding this information to your ‘parents page’, ‘contact page’ or ‘how to find us’ will mean they have alternative ways to travel to school away from the car that will reduce congestion at the school gate, reduce pollution and keep everyone fitter and healthier.

Back to school booklet

This booklet has been produced to provide parents with the information and tools they need to find out the options available when their children start school, even if it's choosing an alternative to the car once or twice a week. The booklet also includes a drawing competition to make the school run fun!

Susie the Child-minder on-line books

If you are in need of a book to support discussions on sustainable travel, then the HCC Susie the Child-minder website will give you access to 'Travelling Back in Time with Susie the Child-minder'. This comes as an on-line page turner book with teaching resources along with other resources.

Create your own Park & Stride maps

To reduce congestion around your nursery and pre school, download a full guide on how to create your own Park & Stride map for your nursery or pre-school and setting up a Park & Stride scheme.

The Parkwise Promise

In an effort to create a safer environment outside schools at the beginning and end of the day you can participate in ‘The Parkwise Promise’, a Council-led initiative to target dangerous and inconsiderate parking near to schools. Please see our Parkwise page for more information.

Scooter Training

Train your Year R to Year 4 pupils how to ride their scooters safely with our Scooter Training Guidelines for Teachers. It aims to enable teaching staff to teach pupils how to scoot safely during the school day e.g. during a school PE lesson and more importantly on their journey to school.

Travel Surveys

Gain an understanding of how your pupils are travelling to school with our travel survey for students, staff and parents and then talk to us about how we can help you improve their journey to school.
