Sustrans NI Active Travel Programme

School Silver Mark

After lots of active travel events through out the 2021/2022 school year, Millington achieved their School Silver Mark.




Term 1 Activities



At Millington we are encouraging children to stay active on the journey to school this winter with Sustrans Journey to Santa Challenge!

Pupils taking part in the challenge will receive a special Journey to Santa stamp card to keep track of their active journeys to school.

Journey to Santa

How does it work?

  • Each day you cycle, scoot or walk to school gets you closer to Santa! 
  • The challenge begin on Monday, 15th November and finishes on Friday 11th  December.
  • Keep your Journey to Santa stamp card in your school bag or desk and make sure you get your journey marked off each day you cycle, scoot or walk to school. 
  • 15 active journeys to school will get you to Santa and a chance to win a prize from Santa’s workshop!

Term 2 Activities


Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel inspires pupils to make active journeys to school, improve air quality in their neighbourhood and discover how these changes benefit their world.

Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel is open to all primary and secondary schools in the UK, including SEN/ASN/ALN schools. It is free to take part and there are daily prizes to be won.

On each day of the challenge, schools compete to see who can get the highest percentage of their pupils walking, using a wheelchair, scooting or cycling to school. Your school’s best five days will determine your final position, but you can log journeys on all ten days if you wish.

How many active journeys will Millington pupils make?
