Active Travel Month October is a collaborative campaign between Active Together, the School Sport and Physical Activity Networks and Choose How You Move. Together we have created a month's worth of activities and incentives for schools across Leicestershire. The campaign will begin on Friday 1 October, which is the last day of Bike To School Week.

Each week of the Active Travel Month will focus on a different travel mode, please see the attached resource booklet for further details:

  • Week One: Cycling
  • Week Two: Walking
  • Week Three: Half-term
  • Week Four: Scooting

Please find below:

  • Resource booklet
  • Wallchart - designed for your schools to use in the classroom to encourage and track each child's daily commute to school (please let me know if you want any printouts).
  • Poem Competition

Your school can log any ACTIVE TRAVEL journey with Daily Boost and your pupils can earn Boost Bands to reward their individual achievements. Daily Boost encourages All pupils to do 15 minutes of ANY activity at any time of the day, so this could be your ACTIVE TRAVEL or if you wanted to offer an alternative for those pupils that are unable to walk, cycle or scoot to school.

Any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch on mlynch@bosworthacademy.org.uk
