Beat the Street is a fun free real-life walking and cycling challenge delivered on behalf of the National Charity Partnership - a partnership between Diabetes UK, the British Heart Foundation and Tesco - and is being delivered with full support of Nottingham City Council.
Designed to get kids and communities moving
Beat the Street is designed to inspire people to make small changes, such as walking or cycling to school every day, to improve their health. In 2015, 300 schools played the game and more than 175,000 people took part.
How does it work?
‘Beat Boxes’ will be positioned throughout Nottingham. Players receive a card which they tap on the Beat Boxes as they walk, cycle, or scoot around town, earning points for themselves and their team. Players can view their progress online on nottingham.beatthestreet.me. There will be prizes for the top teams – and schools - at the end of the competition.

What will taking part mean for your school?
On joining the competition, we will set your school up as a team and provide marketing materials and cards for pupils, parents and staff to play. We will then prepare everything your school needs for the start of the competition.
If your school would like to take part, all we need from you is:
· The number of pupils in your school.
· A png or jpeg of your school logo.
Beat the Street is a great opportunity for your school to demonstrate its pupils getting involved in a physical activity and community focussed initiative, key Ofsted Inspection criteria. It also demonstrates the promotion of personal development and welfare of your pupils.
If you have any questions at all or would like to confirm your interest, please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to get involved. Alternatively for more information, please give our Nottingham Project Engagement Coordinator, Greg Hewitt, a call on 07825631161. He will also be happy to come in for a meeting to discuss how Beat the Street can benefit your school.
