Worle Village Primary School celebrates national green travel award
Worle Village Primary School has achieved a Bronze award for their school travel plan.
Modeshift STARS is a nationally recognised scheme that rewards schools that encourage sustainable, active, and safe travel.
After consulting with everyone, Worle Village Primary School has completed more than 15 initiatives that to help children travel actively and safely to school including Living Streets Walk to School Week, The Sustrans Big Walk & Wheel challenge, National Clean Air Day, Bikeability cycle confidence training, walking on school trips and most recently International Car Free Day.
Aligned with national trends, a recent survey at Worle Village Primary School 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.
