PUPILS can enjoy a smooth return to school this year thanks to a group of enthusiastic youngsters who have created a “travel map”.

Year 8 pupils in Seaford produced a map for students moving from their primary schools into secondary school.

The resource is full of useful information for children who will be making these journeys for the first time this year.

The aim is that by giving the students and their families as much information as possible, they will be able to choose the healthiest ways to travel.

At the end of the last academic year, the pupils presented the maps to Year 6 pupils in Seaford to encourage them to travel sustainably when they start secondary school this week.

Living Streets, the UK charity behind the walk to school campaign worked with the pupils, a parent governor and Seaford Head School to produce the map.

The charity aims to encourage more pupils to walk to school, helping to reduce congestion, road danger and pollution and keeping them active.
