Considerate Parking Campaign

Walk to School - Living Streets

Leave Your Car At Home!

The National Health Service recommends that children and young people aged 5 – 18 should do at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day in order to maintain a basic level of health.

The physical activity should range between moderate activity, such as cycling and playground activities and vigorous activity, such as fast running and tennis.

Also children and young people should minimise the amount of time they spend sitting watching TV, playing computer games, and travelling by car when they could walk or cycle instead. Examples of moderate activity are:

  • walking to school
  • playing in the playground
  • skateboarding
  • rollerblading
  • walking the dog
  • riding a bike to school
  • scooting to school

Moderate-intensity aerobic activity means you're working hard enough to raise your heart rate and break a sweat. One way to tell if you're working at a moderate intensity is if you can still talk but you can't sing the words to a song.

So, help your child keep fit and healthy and leave your car at home!
