At King's Furlong Infant School we encourage our children to have a healthy and active lifestyle.
Our school encourages walking to school because of the benefits we believe it will bring to our children and the community. If you can't walk to school then we ask that you are courteous and respectful to our neighbours and park safely.
We are a school that promote WOW.
What is WoW?
WoW is a scheme run by Living Streets, the charity behind the national Walk to School campaign, which encourages families to walk to school at least once a week.
At the end of each month, children who walked at least once every week will receive a special collectable pin badge. There is a different badge to collect for each month of the school year.
What if we can’t walk to school?
If you live too far away or don’t have time to walk the whole way to school, all children can participate in WoW by walking at least 10 minutes to school.
If driving we recommend that you Park and Stride to earn your WoW badge - park safely away from the school e.g. at a friend’s house - and walk the rest of the way. This provides great exercise and also helps ease congestion around the school.
