Our aims

The main aim of Clean Air Heroes is to promote walking, scooting and cycling as a healthy option which also allows each individual to contribute positively towards cleaner air around the school roads.


More specifically we aim to:

  • Increase the number of pupils, parents and staff walking, scooting and cycling to/from school
  • Increase physical activity of pupils, parents and staff
  • Reduce the number of car journeys to school
  • Reduce congestion and improve air quality around school roads during the school run
  • Nurture positive attitudes towards walking, scooting and cycling in Essex schools
  • Raise pupils’, parents’ and staff’s awareness of own contribution to pollution and its consequences to health
  • Endorse the health and environmental benefits of active travel
