TfL STARS (Sustainable Travel, Active, Responsible and Safe) is a Transport for London community project aimed to inspire young people in the London Boroughs to think differently about travel and its impact on their health, wellbeing and the environment.
We take part to reduce congestion, improve road safety and improve health and wellbeing.
We are proud that St Cecilia’s School holds a Bronze award in recognition of our achievement in active and safer travel initiatives and we are working hard towards achieving the Silver Award.
Our aim is to get as many pupils walking, scooting, cycling or using public transport.
Our achievements so far:
- We have recruited six enthusiastic Young Travel Ambassadors that will help create, plan and carry out various activities and tasks over the next academic year.
- We took part in Walk to School week.
- The nursery children were encouraged to scoot to school where they created their own course to travel around.
- We held a whole school competition to design the brightest outfit for safe travel when it is dark.
- The Junior Travel Ambassadors delivered a Road Safety presentation to EYFS.
- We held several successful Be Bright Be Seen stalls selling accessories to help the children be more visible to traffic when it is dark.
- We have taken part in the Junior Citizenship scheme.
