We all know how much the journey to school has changed since we were at school ourselves - more traffic, less social contact with others, more pressure of time. Through working together to raise the awareness of the positive benefits of more active and sustainable travel choices, such as walking, cycling or using public transport. We can bring about attitude and behaviour changes and encourage positive lifestyle choices amongst pupils, parents and school staff.
By having a Travel Plan we will raise awareness to encourage more active and sustainable travel choices through setting out individual practical measures and initiatives for reducing the number of drop off and pick ups in the car. This will also support road saftey in our local community.
The Action Plan outlines what will be achieved, including targets with dates and people assigned to each action. For example:
- Walk to school week
- 10 Day Active Travel
- Encourage Park and Ride
- Information to be displayed regarding walking routes and Bus/Tram timetables
Information regarding upcoming events will be on our school newsletter and displayed on the events board outside KS1 yard.
