SPRING TERM 2022
A Virtual School Games Event for Central Beds Schools
Street Tag is a family-friendly game that turns your local area into a virtual playground to earn rewards for physical activity, such as walking, running, and cycling. It's a great way to stay active and explore local parks and green spaces.
With Covid-19 continuing to affect how we all work and how children study and commute to school, it's becoming more important to keep positive mental health and stay motivated to maintain a daily hour of exercise.
This year in 2022, Street Tag is very useful for supporting:
1. Positive mental health in these difficult times.
2. Keeping engaged and active at home by converting the family's steps movement into points for the school on the leaderboard.
3. Supporting your active travel plans for walking and cycling to local shops, school run, work, etc.
4. Supporting your hour of exercise plan a day, especially using Street Tag's Power Hour.
So far on Street Tag,
- 25,000 active families account created on Street Tag
- 8.9 million tags collected from walking and cycling
- 2 Billion steps since April 2020 of the Covid-19 lockdown when we started support for steps tracking and conversion into points
- 3,654,495 active miles (walked, ran, cycled)
This is how it works
Children, families, and school staff will sign up to represent their school on the Street Tag app to collect virtual points assigned to virtual tags that can be found and created all around them in the community and green spaces. Once you are within a 40-metre radius of any virtual tags, the app will automatically collect the points for you. Your steps can also be synced and converted into Street Tag points. These points add up in real-time on the schools' leaderboard, with performance bonus prizes to be won at the end of each season for the school PTA. With your support, we can encourage families to be more active, walking, cycling to school and in their various communities.

Last but not least, we have additional monthly virtual drop-in sessions that we run monthly for school teachers to attend and ask questions or learn from other schools.
