Early Years Resources
Transport, traffic and travel- all unavoidable in any person’s life. The transport topic is a fantastic way to work with parents and your local community to make a real difference to your local transport network- get together to reduce speed limits to 20mph, restrict parking all of which could potentially save lives!
Project idea – Modeshift STARS
We’ve linked up with the team at Modeshift to help schools take action on transport. Supported by the Department for Transport, STARS is the National School Travel Awards scheme that recognises schools that demonstrate excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable travel. The scheme encourages schools to join in a major effort to increase levels of sustainable and active travel improving the health and well-being of children and young people. Modeshift STARS is free for schools and taking part can form evidence for your Eco-Schools awards. Head to their website here to find out how you can get involved.
