Clockhouse Achieves GOLD... again!!!!
Each year STARS schools replace 13 million miles' worth of car journeys with walking, cycling and scooting!
Clockhouse Primary School annually partakes in the TFL STARS Scheme. STARS is TfL's accreditation scheme for London schools. 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 improves road safety.
Did you know the average journey to school is less than one kilometre that is around a ten-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.
Working closely with our Junior Travel Ambassadors, we are pleased to announce that Clockhouse Primary School has achieved gold accreditation for the third consecutive time. This is a whole school achievement with children across the school being involved. Following our most recent annual survey car use overall has gone down and this is one of the main factors in achieving gold status.
This year we are taking part in Living Streets – Let’s walk to school each child can log on to the Wow travel tracker and record their daily journey. The reward is a WOW badge at the end of each month.
Here at Clockhouse we like to promote an active lifestyle, including walking, riding bikes and scooters to school.
