Schools Engagement and Sustainable Travel Schools Accreditation

Our STARS Team are working with schools in Gloucester, Cheltenham and Tewkesbury that are in or near Air Quality Management Areas.  They are offering support to schools to sign up to the national Sustainable Travel Accreditation and Recognition Scheme (STARS). Schools involved will work towards increasing levels of walking/scooting/cycling.  Here are just some of the ways schools can win awards using a range of initiatives and activities to get their school community actively travelling to school.

  • Air Pollution Project
  • Junior & Senior Travel Ambassadors
  • Travel Survey
  • Scooter Training
  • Walking Map Zones
  • School Travel Plan

The Schools Engagement STARS Team will support school management, staff, parents and pupils, the whole school community, to build a legacy of behaviour change towards active travel.
