North Somerset school celebrates national green travel award
Becket Primary School in Worle has achieved a Bronze award for their school travel plan.
Modeshift STARS is a nationally recognised scheme that rewards schools who encourage sustainable, active, and safe travel.
After consulting with everyone in the school, Becket Primary School have completed more than 15 initiatives like cycle confidence training (Bikeability) and walking when they are learning outside the classroom to help children travel actively and safely to school.
Aligned with national trends, a recent survey at Becket showed that despite their ongoing work during the last 2 years, the percentage of those travelling by car to school has increased. The eco-group are already working with teachers on how to change this on a journey to do even more to improve their environment and get their silver award.
