CTL is committed to reducing child pedestrian casualties and increasing independent sustainable modes of travel.


Stepping Out is CTLs PEDESTRIAN TRAINING scheme designed with Reception and Y1 children's needs and parents/teachers concerns in mind.


Training provides children with basic road safety skills in preparation for independent travel later on in school life and beyond. Children increase observation and awareness skills to be aware of hazards on the road.


Children who walk, scoot or cycle to school improve their fitness whilst developing essential road and personal safety skills to equip them for later

life. Reducing levels of congestion and pollution around schools makes

them healthier, safer, environmentally friendly places.

Walking, scooting or cycling to school enables young people to achieve 60 minutes of physical activity every day (younger children should be active for up to 180 minutes each day)

Walking to school embeds valuable road safety skill messages in young children which will helps keep them safe for the rest of their lives

Builds friendships and social skills


Saves money on petrol and cost of general wear and tear on the car


Walking can save time - especially if parents and carers help out and share walking
