TFL STARS Gold Award
What is the STARS Award?
STARS = Sustainable Travel: Active, Responsible, Safe
We are proud to follow STARS, TfL's accreditation scheme for London schools and nurseries. This scheme has helped us to shape our schools travel plan and to inspire our children to travel to school sustainably, actively, responsibly and safely by championing walking, scooting and cycling. The scheme also supports pupils' wellbeing, helps to reduce congestion at the school gates and to improve road safety and air quality.
How have we achieved our award?
We have implemented a series of initiatives in school such as a walking bus led by a group of parent volunteers, a parent parking pledge to reduce toxic emissions from car exhausts, Junior Travel Ambassadors who can reach out into the local community and a school traffic scheme to make the roads surrounding the school safer and more accessible.
