This is the first Year since 2012 that Allenby has worked with TfL Stars and we have a couple of key outcomes we would like to achieve;

  • We want every child to be able to ride a bike safely on the road by the end of Year 6
  • To make sure that every child, regardless of circumstances,  can have the opportunity to own a bike or scooter
  • We want everyone to take part in active travel to school at least once a week
  • We want to improve the curriculum offer to include road, bike and scooter safety
  • All children by the end of Year 6 have planned and travelled safely on the tube and a bus as part of school trips
  • To improve the number of staff that take part in active travel to school

If you have any questions about active travel, road safety or anything else please come in and talk to us.

 

STARS – Sustainable Travel: Active, Responsible, Safe

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' wellbeing, helps to reduce congestion at the school gates and improve road safety and air quality.

Why STARS?

The average journey to school is less than one kilometre, 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

Be part of the solution

Since the accreditation scheme started in 2007, STARS schools' pupils, parents/carers and staff have replaced over 22 million kilometres of car journeys with active travel! That's an incredible step towards a healthier, less congested London.

As a STARS school you can expect to see an average 6% reduction in the number of trips made by car to your school; gold and silver accredited schools can see up to 12% reduction
