Fairfield Infant School

Everyone is valued and learning is fun


We are taking part in Walktober this term!


By travelling actively and/or sustainably throughout October, we can all get moving for our wellbeing, our community and our planet.


We hope as many of our pupils and staff as possible can get involved by walking, wheeling, cycling, scooting, using Park and Stride and public transport more often. 


We are planning extra school activities in conjunction with Walktober and full details about this will   follow soon but may include:


· Bling your bike/scooter event including a parade in the playground

· Participation in whole-school Road Safety training through our feature assemblies


This event will serve as our school entry for the school Walktober competition being run by the My Journey Team at Hampshire County Council, so your support would be appreciated.


They will also be running a Walktober competition for your child to enter. Each pupil will receive a Walktober Challenge Card today, which sets four weekly challenges to try over the course of the month plus a bonus task for the final two days. The weekly challenges can be adapted if necessary, or your child may like to come up with their own ideas instead.


We have sent parents an information leaflet via Parentmail on Monday 2nd October.  The leaflet includes how to submit your child’s competition entry.


Please visit:

for information and ideas.


You can also hand your child’s entry direct to the school and we will submit their entries for you! Please hand these in  before Friday 10th November.
