school run is fun
for kids

Have you got a Scooter?

Is it in good working order?

Why not use it to scoot to school?

You can scoot with your mum, your dad, your best friend.

Its fun, it’s good for the environment and it’s healthy too.

If you do scoot to school, you should stay on the path, stop for people who are walking, check drive ways, go slowly round corners and get off your scooter when crossing the road.

And always take care and be safe and sensible.

Does your child have a scooter?

Is it in good working order?

Have you thought about them scooting to school?

Its fun, its good for the environment, its quicker and cheaper than going by car.

Regular exercise such as scooting to school contributes to a healthier life style and is seen as an effective way of tackling childhood obesity.

Your child’s school may offer scooter awareness for pupils in year 3.

The school may also have secure scooter storage available.

Think, could this be an option for you?

Making our travel more sustainable...

As part of everyone’s efforts to cut the amount of carbon dioxide we produce, schools are setting their own targets for reducing the number of school journeys made by car.

Walking, cycling or scooting to school contributes to the whole school physical activities policy. It also links to healthy schools, Eco School and sustainable schools

Initiatives such as:-

  • Walk once a Week (WOW)
  • Fit Fridays
  • Park and Stride
  • Pedometer challenge
  • Cycling training
  • Pedestrian training

can help to achieve these targets and can also be fun for every one.
