Walk to School & Travel Plan

We are delighted to announce that this year we will working to maintain our Platinum status. As a school, we are part of the Modeshift STARS scheme – the national schools award scheme established to recognise schools that have demonstrated excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable travel.

The scheme encourages schools across the country to join in a major effort to increase levels of sustainable and active travel in order to improve the health and wellbeing of children and young people. In recent years, we have taken part in Hampshire County Council’s walk to school week along with other similar initiatives such as Bike Week, Bikeability and Scooter challenges. We are pushing to create links with active travel through our curriculum by promoting the use of public transport in our school trips. For example, Year 5 will be embarking on a trip to the Museum of Farnham by a combination of walking and train.

Our children diligently log their journey to school every day and, if they manage to walk once per week, they can earn a badge each month! If we can continue to keep up the enthusiasm and maintain a healthy journey to school, we will be able to maintain our status as the first platinum awarded school in Rushmoor.  

We are also learning to identify different types of birds this year. Feel free to use the identification charts below in your own garden, the park or maybe out on a walk to see which species of bird you can spot:
