WALKING has helped a school secure a prestigious travel award.

Bosham Primary School, in West Sussex, is to be handed a prestigious Travel Mark 3 Award in recognition of the sustainable travel culture it has built up over the past six years.

Children can catch a walking bus on Friday mornings. Regulars receive a loyalty card and awards and certificates are handed out to pupils when they make a set number of journeys.

Parents are encouraged to park at the nearby church in Bosham, so their children can walk to school in hi-visibility vests.

Each week the Golden Boot award is handed out to the class who used the most sustainable modes of travel over the past five days.

The award will be presented by West Sussex County Councillor Pieter Montyn.
