Auchtertool Primary School pupils with their award for finishing in the top 30 schools in the UK.

Capshard and Auchtertool Priamries both finished in the top 30.

Marta Ramage, co-ordinator, said: "We were delighted with the number of schools taking part this year and overwhelmed by the support the schools received from parents and pupils alike.

"School Travel Plan statistics highlight that most pupils want to actively travel to school and state that congestion around the school gate causes road safety and environmental barriers which deter parents from letting them actively travel to school.

Schools across Fife will also be taking part in Walk to School and Bike to School Week at the end of this month.
