This year we have decided as a school to consider ways we can further improve the amount of physical activity our children are taking part in every day. One of the ways we are going to increase the amount of physical activity is by encouraging children to be more active on their way to and from school. Modeshift Stars is a national awards scheme that recognises schools that have shown excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable travel. Throughout the year we will be having assemblies, promoting road safety, taking part in the Road Safety Week, competitions linked to cycling/scooting and we hope to increase our Walk to School days. We will keep you up to date with our initiatives in our newsletter, on the school website and Facebook page.
Why do we want to take part in Modeshift Stars?
- Healthier pupils
- Safer pupils
- Involving the whole school community
- Reduce the number of cars and increase the amount of walking, cycling and scooting
- The generation of a School Travel Plan
- A National accreditation
