Pom-Bear recognises the many benefits for kids of walking to school and offers the following safety advice for parents supporting Walk to School month.

Pom-Bear’s safe walking tips

1.     Teach your children the Green Cross Code and ensure they put this into practice every time they’re out walking. Children should not walk to school alone until they have learnt and confidently practice the code
2.     Where possible, walk on pavements, keeping well away from the curb, and always walk between your children and the traffic
3.     Make sure they can be seen at all times by using reflective and high visibility clothing. This is especially important at night and as the mornings and early evenings become darker during winter
4.     Hold their hands firmly at all times
5.     Teach them to pay attention when walking and never listen to personal stereo systems, use mobile phones or hand-held games
