All aboard the walking school bus.
School children from across Staffordshire will be putting their best foot forward when they take to the streets for this year's Walk to School Week.
The campaign, which started on Monday, is encouraging children to join in with the national festival of walking.
This year in Staffordshire 18,000 pupils will be taking part. This year is also the 20th anniversary of the Walking Bus scheme in Staffordshire and to celebrate this, the Active School Travel Team will be joining the latest Walking Bus at John Wheeldon Primary Academy in Stafford.
In Staffordshire there are 63 walking buses across the county.
A walking bus is like a normal bus but on foot. It takes the same route to school every day, picking up children along the way. Trained parent volunteers walk the children safely to school and everyone wears a high visibility waistcoat.
Helen Fisher, from Staffordshire County Council said: "Walking or even scooting or cycling to school has so many benefits for the community and it's something we are keen to see more of."
