We have achieved the Modeshift Stars Bronze Award.
We are delighted to have received the national Modeshift Sustainable Travel Accreditation and Recognition award (STARS) to recognise everybody’s efforts to choose more sustainable and healthier ways of getting to and from school.
The award was presented to us by Rob Bounds (Derbyshire Senior Transport Officer) at our assembly on Friday, 27th November. Rob presented a short assembly promoting sustainable ways of travelling to school with the help of six members of staff, who stressed the importance of staying safe and being seen by wearing/carrying reflective clothing. He then presented the award to our Eco Committee.
We will continue to work very hard to make the roads outside our school safer and promote travelling to school in a more sustainable way.
This year we will again be providing Bikeability training for our Y6 children and Scooter Smart training for our Foundation Stage 2 children. Last year we introduced more advanced scooter training for our year 3 children, with the help of PCSO Duggan and Constable Rockley and Rob Bounds and this will continue again this year.
We would like to thank you for your continuing support in helping to keep our pupils’ journeys to and from school safer.
