Children across South Rugby will be taking part in the annual Walk to School Week (17th - 21st May 2021), during national walking month.
Sue McGonagle, Cawston Grange Primary School headteacher said: “We do encourage the children to take part in walk to school week wherever possible.”
Walk to school week is organised by walking charity Living Streets.
This year it’s themed around comic-book heroes with walking superpowers: super strong, super smart, super smiley, super safe, and super sustainable.
Mary Creagh, Chief Executive of Living Streets, said: “Walk to School Week is a fun, inclusive, free and simple activity, which improves the physical and mental wellbeing of children and celebrates walking for all. Pupils enjoy the health and happiness that comes from walking, while schools and local communities enjoy reduced congestion and pollution.”
Last year almost 200,000 children across the country took part in walk to school week.

There’s a very thorough map of public rights of way with their reference numbers on Warwickshire County Council’s website. However, the council does say this map has no legal status. You should check ordnance survey maps before you head out, which you can see from Bing maps.
