Travel Smart Week

Our Travel Smart week takes place  next week from Monday 18th October. 

Throughout the week, we will encourage pupils to make the most of their school journey as a way to help them keep fit, beat traffic jams and pollution and remember to travel safely too.

For the October 2021 campaign, pupils and parents are encouraged to join our well-being themed sustainable travel week by being a Travel Smart smiler, as they make more active and environmentally friendly journeys to school during the week.

The 7 steps to well-being are:

  • socialise - get together with others
  • move - be active
  • interest - have a hobby, keep learning, do something creative
  • look - take notice of the world around you
  • eat well - eat a balanced diet
  • rest - relax, sleep well
  • support - give help to others

So making an active journey, after a healthy breakfast and a good night's sleep, is a great way start the day with a smile.

As part of the campaign week, pupils can follow some of the suggested ideas for each day, such as finding out more about the things they have seen or discovered on their journey or sharing their designs and thoughts on a 'car free' or 'be bright be seen day'.

As part of the week we would also like to invite pupils scoot or cycle to school but would also remind them to wear a helmet if they choose to do so.

I hope you will support your child in engaging with Travel Smart week.

Parents can share the activities they undertake on the Travel Smart Twitter account with the hashtag #BeATravelSmartSmiler.
