Pompey Monster Stomp to School Challenge 2019

The Pompey Monster Stomp to School Challenge was initially a pilot scheme to encourage children to walk, scoot or cycle to school regularly.  It also provides road safety information in a fun and engaging way.  Following its success in nine Portsmouth schools, most recently ARK Ayrton Primary Academy and St. John's Catholic Primary school, Portsmouth City Council continue to offer the initiative to other schools in the city. The next schools to participate in the Pompey Monster Stomp to School Challenge are:

  • Penhale Infant School
  • Mayfield school

This seven-week challenge runs from Monday 21 January until Friday 8 March 2019. Follow the link to sign up a pupil from one of these schools now.  Pupils who have signed up for the challenge will receive a free pack with everything they need to take part in the challenge from school.  There are eight different Pompey Monster keyrings to collect, including a limited edition glow in the dark keyring during half term.

Follow the link for lots of useful information about walking to school.

Park and Stomp maps for schools

In the future, if you don't have time to walk all the way then why not Park and Stomp?  Parking a short distance from the school and walking the rest of the way in helps children to stay active and keeps the school gates clear of cars.  Maps for selected schools are available to download below.
