12:52pm Wednesday 24th October 2012 in News
Pupils from Drove Primary School will be joining forces with thousands of children from across the UK during October for International Walk to School Month.
Teaming up with housebuilder David Wilson Homes, the school, located close to The Sidings new homes development, is encouraging pupils to reap the benefits of walking to school. Despite the average distance to a pupil’s primary school being one mile, around 50 per cent of children do not walk to school regularly, with 41 per cent driven in cars.
