At Purbrook Junior School, we recognise the importance of WALKING TO SCHOOL. Not only does it support our vision of a ‘greener’ environment by reducing our carbon footprint* but it is proven to benefit children in a number of ways.

Children who walk to school have been found to:

  • Have higher academic performance in terms of attention/alertness, verbal, numeric and reasoning abilities;
  • Have a higher degree of pleasantness and lower levels of stress during the school day; and
  • Have higher levels of happiness, excitement and relaxation on the journey to school.

As a school, we believe in promoting positive, enjoyable, safe and ‘green’ ways of travelling to and from school. We recognise the positive effects that it can have on a child’s mental health and wellbeing as well as on parents and the local environment too.

Come on Purbrook – let’s walk to school!
