Hampshire Starting School Toolkit
Starting a new school is a big step for pupils and parents, not only in terms of education but also as it involves going to a new location with an often unfamiliar journey.
This toolkit has been designed to support parents and pupils through the process of planning their new routes to school over the summer holidays and, as much as is possible, making them active, safe and sustainable.
There are separate downloadable booklets for pupils starting in Year R, Year 3 and Year 7, with two brand new humorous and historical films to enjoy, commissioned especially for this project. There are also lots of ideas for follow-up activities and links to many fantastic resources to support active travel.
The My Journey website also has lots of information for parents on the following:
- Social distancing on the school run
- Walking for wellbeing
