Going for gold
We are part of the TFLs STARS scheme, which actively encourages our Beckford community to find a healthier way to travel to and from school.
We have achieved Bronze status and this year, we are hoping to get Silver, even Gold if we can show that more than 90% of the Beckford community- children, parents and staff stop travelling by car.
In the autumn term we have set up a School Travel Plan Working Party (STPWP) and have completed several surveys to come up with some issues for our SChoolTravel Plan.
In the first half of the Spring term We have drafted a School Travel Policy and a child Friendly version, that will be published once it has been approved. we have also written our first JTA Newsletter, which will be distributed to all children and available online.
In the second half of the Spring term, we will be launching Walk Once a Week to the school, where we will be encouraging everyone to walk at least once per week. We will be awarding badges and a Class of the Month Trophy.
We will kick off the activities with a design the new Walk to School Badge competition, where the 4 winning design from our school are entered into a nationwide competition.
We have won this before...
