Modeshift Stars Silver Award Presentation

To achieve the Silver Award we have worked very hard to take part in and promote a number of transport initiatives, to encourage children to get to school in healthier ways.

We have help from Mr Wigley, who works with the school to help us set up our ideas, such as the latest questionnaire and the Be Bright Be Seen campaign. We are looking forward to working towards the Gold Award.

Be Bright Be Seen

So far this term we have delivered an assembly promoting safe travel now the clocks have gone back, called ‘Be Bright Be Seen’. We have also completed a survey of how pupils currently travel to school – here are the results:

Travel How do Pupils Travel How pupils would like to travel
Walk 149 39
Cycle 7 43
Scooting 21 35
Bus 2 11
Park & Stride 47 5
Train 0 32
Car Share 4 9
Car 32 23

We are extremely amazed with the results of the survey which show how many people travel to school in an eco-friendly way.

Our next aim is to reduce the amount of people parking outside school. We would like you to think about whether you could park and stride if you live too far away to walk all the way. Alternatively, the survey says that more people would like to cycle to school so we will be promoting this too.

Please watch this space for more information and our ‘Be Bright Be Seen’ competition.

Thank you.
