Active Travel School Toolkit

As Chair of the CPG on Active Travel, I am delighted to have been able to launch this new Active Travel to School Toolkit at Penyrheol primary school in Gorseinon. It is the culmination of a long process of discussion and engagement involving over 100 organisations and individuals - adults and children - from across Wales.

Huw at Penyrheol Primary School in Gorseinon for the launch of the new Active Travel School Toolkit

It sets out all the reasons why we need to change and suggests ways of making walking and cycling to school easier and more attractive. The solutions range from ambitious new paths to something as simple as making sure children have somewhere to store wet weather gear. The Toolkit points to lots of good practice that is already happening in schools across Wales. But we need to do much more.

The school run as we do it now causes immense problems; our guide for increasing walking, cycling or scooting to school is packed with solutions. We are not saying it is always easy. Not all schools will be able to do everything, but we hope most will be able to do something.
