Modeshift STARS is the national schools awards scheme that has been established to recognise schools that have demonstrated excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable travel.The scheme encourages schools across the country to join in a major effort to increase levels of sustainable and active travel in order to improve the health and well-being of children and young people.
The school community has worked hard and as a result have earned both bronze and silver awards. We have completed many initiatives including the installation of a golden mile track, using public transport for school trips and promotion of Park Wise considerate parking scheme. We promote the Park and Stride sites, benefits of walking etc and other forms of sustainable travel. Over the last 3 years we have seen an increase of 6.5% of parents using the park and stride sites resulting in 23% of our parents now using the park and stride.
We have now submitted an application to achieve our Gold – watch this space for the results which we should hear about later this term!
