Park and Stride Schools

11 May 2022

Earn BetterPoints for yourself and your school

We are very pleased to be working with Leicester City and Leicestershire County Councils to bring a 'Park and Stride' pilot to the Choose How You Move Rewards challenge.

What's Park and Stride?

In an ideal world every child would walk to school every day. But we know it isn't always practical to walk the whole way for some families. This pilot has been set up to encourage your child to be active and keep cars off the roads near schools (making it safer and healthier for all).  Each school has set up a car park nearby for families to park up and stride the rest of the way to school.

How can you earn rewards?

From 6th June until the end of term 8th July you can earn up to 50 BetterPoints per day by walking to and from the following schools to their park and stride car parks.

Overdale Junior or Infant School:

  • Leicester Bowls Club
  • Knighton Park Car Park

Sherrier C. of E. School:

  • Lutterworth Leisure Centre

You will earn 25 BetterPoints each for your outward and return journeys. You can earn this reward twice per day.

BetterPoints will also make a donation to your school and match the BetterPoints earned for every Park and Stride you do this half-term.

What can I spend my points on?

BetterPoints can be earned by tracking eligible activities - over time they add up. Your points balance appears in the menu on the left of the app. Once you’ve collected enough points you can redeem them against vouchers in the rewards catalogue on the app or donate them to charity. Every 1,000 BetterPoints are worth £1.
