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.
We encourage children to walk to school or travel by scooter and bike. We have a “Park and Stride” arrangement whereby you can park at the village hall and walk, scoot or bike down Chestnut Avenue to school.
Rewards are put in place with the WOW Travel Tracker (walk once a week.)
Outside agencies visit school to do activities with the children such as Bikability and Scoot- training.
We hope that more children will become more active and find enjoyment at the same time as keeping fit and healthy!
