WCC’s transport spokesperson Coun Jan Matecki said: “Active travel, particularly for the journey to and from school, has never been so important and has many benefits, including physical health and mental wellbeing and helping to reduce congestion and air pollution outside the school gate.


“In offering this training, we aim to develop the knowledge and skills of the next generation to scoot safely in the hope that they will continue to choose active travel into their adult lives.”
