We are taking part in the national Modeshift Sustainable Travel Accreditation & Recognition for Schools award initiative which aims to:
increase opportunities for daily physical activity by promoting active and healthier ways of travelling to school such as walking, cycling and scooting;
make a contribute to improving air quality;
help reduce traffic congestion;
promote safer and sustainable ways of travelling for all journey modes.
20th- 24th May 2019
As part of our Travel Smart campaign for 20 to 24 May 2019, we are encouraging pupils to put their words in motion and choose more active and environmentally friendly ways to travel smart to school.
As part of the week, you can follow some suggested themes for each day, such as a Two wheeled Tuesday, where pupils can travel by any form of people powered wheels.
Other suggestions include holding a "travel together" day to encourage pupils to make journeys with others – either by car sharing or walking with their friends.
Pupils can also create calligrams to illustrate the different active ways you can make a journey to school and to share their ideas with us by asking an adult to send a photo or drawing to Mrs Newton. The best pictures/photographs will be shared on the website and Twitter page.
Journey to School
As a school, we would like you to consider your journey to school which could help reduce traffic congestion and improve the safety of our children. Please see the Travel map and bus route below for ideas on how to do this.
