Street Tag takes Oxfordshire by storm

We're delighted to be able to work with partners to promote Street Tag, a free smartphone app that offers a reward for physical activity and can be enjoyed by everyone across Oxfordshire. Primary Schools, families, communities or even individuals can record the distance they go by walking, cycling or running by scanning the virtual tags around the County.

We've been busy getting the word out about this fantastic scheme and are thrilled that nearly 60 primary schools across Oxfordshire have already signed up. Read on to find out more, spread the word and get tagging!

How can Primary Schools get involved?

Street Tag is a great way to get the whole school community active, with each season of Street Tag lasting for 12 weeks. Walking, cycling or park-and-striding to school creates more points for your school to earn more rewards each term.

Street Tag is the ultimate healthy competition for all Primary Schools to get involved with. At the end of the 12-week season, the top three schools on each of the District leader boards will receive £50 for their Parent Teacher Association. Then, the top two schools from each District in season one and two will be entered into the Street Tag Oxfordshire Schools Games finals to compete to be recognised as the most active schools in the County.

Once Primary Schools have signed up to Street Tag, the next steps are:

  • Download the Street Tag app through Google Play or App Store
  • Scan the QR code once you've reached your School by walking, cycling, running etc.
  • Earn points for your school through physical activity by scanning virtual tags on your journey and convert these into Street Tag points

How can you get involved in the community?

Street Tag is for everyone and you don't need to be linked to a Primary School. Individuals or families can join the Oxfordshire community league. Create teams of up to six people or take on the challenge yourself to collect points and earn rewards.

The Oxfordshire Community League runs for 12-week seasons and at the end of each season the top 10 in the leader board will win a reward from the City or District Councils.

Getting Involved

  • Download the Street Tag app through Google Play or App Store
  • Select Oxfordshire for the league table
  • Create a team or play individually

Active 60

We recently launched our Active 60 campaign to help ensure every child in Oxfordshire can achieve 60 active minutes, every day. Street Tag is a great way to achieve this whether as a family activity or school challenge.
