STARS 2017 Bronze Accreditation

On 18 September 2017 Sherington received its 2017 Bronze Accreditation for STARS (Sustainable Travel: Active, Responsible, Safe), TfL’s accreditation scheme for London schools and nurseries.  STARS inspires young Londoners to travel to school sustainably, actively, responsibly and safely by championing walking, scooting and cycling.  STARS supports pupils’ wellbeing, helps to reduce congestion at the school gates and improve road safety and air quality.

What we do:

  • All local school trips are made by public transport where possible, or on foot if the destination is close by
  • We let all parents/carers of new pupils know that we are an active travel school before their child starts
  • We encourage all members of our school community to walk, scoot, cycle or travel by public transport to school
  • Where a car must be used we ask all parents to drive only part of the way, park away from the school and walk the last few minutes of the journey (‘park and walk’)
  • We promote safe and active travel as much as possible by using our newsletters and website
