At Wick Primary school we are dedicated to ensuring children lead happy and active lifestyles. This year we are excited to be participating in WOW, the year-round walk to school challenge.
To encourage children to choose an active method of travel, we use the Travel Tracker app to record daily pupil journeys. When a child walks twice per week for a month, they will earn their monthly WOW badge. Each class is provided with an engaging dashboard to see which classes are leading the way in active travel. Each term we will hold a themed Walk to School event, look out for announcements in our school newsletter and on our website advertising these events.
As part of our commitment to the Active Travel plan, we are also working with Modeshift stars and the Road Safety and Sustainable Travel team to equip our children with the tools they need to travel safely on our roads. Throughout the year we will run workshops on scooter and bicycle safety, Clean air and travel planning. We also aim to invite Dr Bike into school to ensure our children's cycles are safe and well maintained.
