Giant Walk to School - 12th November
Our school is participating in Ealing’s schoolwide Giant Walk to School on Friday 12th November 2021 in support of COP26. Showing our commitment to help alleviate the climate crisis and increase active and sustainable travel to and from school. Pledging our support to reduce carbon emissions one step at a time!
What is COP26?
COP26 is the 2021 United Nations annual climate change conference which is taking place in Glasgow this November and will be the biggest meeting of world leaders that the UK has ever hosted! At COP meetings, governments from across the globe agree on targets for the future, with the aim of reducing greenhouse gases and protecting the planet. These decisions affect people all over the globe; they help us all work together to become greener and more sustainable.
What are the benefits of walking, cycling, scooting or Park & Striding to school?
- - Actively travelling to school helps children feel happier and healthier and they arrive refreshed, fit and ready to learn.
- - More families that actively travel to school means fewer cars on the road during the school run, helping to reduce congestion and air pollution and increase road safety at the school gates.
What if you can’t walk all the way to school?
- - If you live too far away or don’t have time to walk the whole way to school, you can Park and Stride. Park or hop off public transport at least ten minutes away from the school and walk the rest of the way.
- - Don’t forget to check if your school has a Walk to School map here. Or ask your child’s teacher for more information
