To summarise, 16% of children joined the walking bus on one or more days over the course of the week resulting in a 5% reduction of cars on the morning drive run.  This equates to an saving of  approximately 23274gm of CO2.   An additional 5% of cars parked at the Old Barn with a 9% participation in Park and Stride resulting in an overall reduction of cars coming onto the school site of 10% and a total of 25% of children taking part. 20% of parents joined the morning walk followed by a cup coffee and a croissant (115 were eaten last week!) at the Horsebox Café.

In total approximately 35 miles were walked by the children over the course of the week.
