The school run, there is a reason why it is called a school run and not walk. We are rushing around trying to make sure your little ones have everything they need for the day ahead…Then…Just as you close the front door, you find out its sports day!
By the time you leave the house you feel rushed and want to get your little ones to school as quickly as possible, so they get a good start to the day.
But what if we told you scooting to school will give you and your children the best start to your day? Here are 5 reasons why.
- Less cars are on the road
More than 1,000 children a month are injured on local roads around British schools, according to insurance industry figures. With fewer cars on the road we can make school areas safer for children.
2. Scooting to school is good for the environment.
Picking up a scooter will greatly reduce your children’s exposure to pollution, high levels can cause conditions like asthma. Rising levels of pollution around schools are becoming an increasing concern, with 2019 seeing the highest recorded level of children being taken to school in cars.
3. Children are awake and ready for learning.
Scooting to school will make a huge difference to your little one’s day. According to a recent study, physical activity before class led to increases in students’ test scores, overall physical activity and confidence in their academic ability. Scooting to school promotes a healthy and active lifestyle for your child, which will help to keep your little ones safe at this uncertain time.

4. Save money on petrol.
We all fill up at the beginning of the week and think this has got to last me until the end! Going back and forth soon adds up and it is the little trips like the school run that wastes your petrol. Give yourself the satisfaction of making a full tank last a whole week.
5. Scooting to school with your child allows you to value more moments together.
A survey by Highland Spring prior to lockdown says the average British family spends 34 minutes a day together in the week. This is because parents have long working hours and are exhausted after the daily commute. With lockdown turning living rooms into offices, family time is more accessible than ever! So, what better time than now to make the change from car to scooter on the school run.
2020 has bought a lot of things, the biggest being change. Scooting to school is a positive change for you and your family. Now is the time to pick up your scooter and ditch the car. Value every moment together as a family, even the school run!
