At Gascoigne Primary we are working towards a Bronze award for TFL stars.
STARS is 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' well being, helps to reduce congestion at the school gates and improve road safety and air quality The average journey to school is less than one kilo metre, that's around a 10-minute walk. However, many of these journeys are made by car leading to congestion and an unsafe and polluted environment for us all. By swapping car journeys for active travel, together STARS schools can make a real difference to our city and support the Mayor's vision for Healthy Streets.
We would like to encourge all children to be walk, cycle, scoot or come by bus.
We are working towards for all children, staff and parent and carers to be part of the Travel activities. it not only improves pupils' emotional health and wellbeing but also contributes to pupils' 60 minutes a day of physical activity
It has a significant increases in attendance and attainment.
