A school travel plan (STP) is a document which shows how we encourage the whole school community to adopt safer and more sustainable ways of travel to and from school. It consists of annual surveys, consultation with children, parents, governors, staff and the local community, initiatives and activities that are embedded in our curriculum and part of our day to day school life.
We have an Eco Team which meet at least four times a term, lead by three teachers and eight year two children. We change the Eco warriors half way through the academic year to give others the opportunity to lead the school in activities and initiatives. We also have a Well-Being Committee which meets termly to discuss many areas including healthy schools, school travel plan and our school environment.
The school travel plan has three levels, bronze, silver and gold. We have held a gold (outstanding) travel plan for six years which means we lead our school in numerous initiatives and campaigns, involve children, parents, staff, governors and the local community, have decreased the car usage over the past eight years and provide many opportunities to teach awareness of road safety and sustainable travel. It has to be reviewed annually and the gold accreditation has to be re applied for every three years.
