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 right across the country to join in a major effort to increase levels of sustainable and active travel and in so doing, improve the health and well-being of children and young people.
Every school in England can participate in Modeshift STARS for free. On completion of an application for Modeshift STARS, schools will automatically have a brand new national standard School Travel Plan.
As of June 2015, 50 local authorities representing just over 10,000 schools in England are signed up to Modeshift STARS.
In April 2016 our school was began the Bronze Award for our commitment to sustainable and active travel and the aim is to improve upon this in subsequent years.
Cycle training for adults
Wherever possible we encourage sustainable and active travel to school. Consider alternative models of travel for example car and stride (parking further away from school and walking), Car sharing - can you offer another child a lift to and from school?, scooter and bike (ask in school for where these can be left).
