Walking To School

Children walking to schoolWalking to school is a great way for children to get exercise at the beginning of the day and arrive at school fresh and alert. Smaller children enjoy chatting with parents or friends.

A walking bus is a group of children walking to school under the supervision of at least two trained adults, one leading the group (driver) and one at the rear (conductor).

Coming to school by walking bus is a fun, healthy way to start the day. It also reduces pollution and congestion by having fewer cars around school.

There are currently 7 Walking Buses operating in Rotherham schools. If you would like to know more about starting a walking bus in your school, contact the Transportation Unit for more information.
