October is walk to school month

October is International Walk to School Month, when thousands of children across the world will be celebrating walking to school. In the UK figures released this month show that the number of children walking to school has reached an all-time low. A generation ago 70% of children walked to school. Today that figure is just 48%. This is a trend that is repeated in many countries around the world.

Is your school a STAR?

North Yorkshire County Council has signed up to Modeshift STARS . This is a national schools awards scheme that has been established to recognise schools that have demonstrated excellence in supporting walking, cycling and other forms of sustainable transport. The scheme encourages schools right across the country to join a major effort to increase levels of sustainable and active travel and in doing so, improve the health, safety and well-being of children and the whole school community.
