School travel plans

Modeshift STARS is the national awards scheme recognising schools that have shown excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable travel.

STARS is the new and quicker way of completing a school travel plan. Schools take part in as many initiatives as possible to achieve their bronze, silver or gold awards.


Other schools that have achieved a school travel plan award have found that it’s increased the number of children walking to school, reducing the amount of traffic around the school gates.

For those who live too far away to walk, other schemes are available including park and stride, where parents/teachers park a 5 or 10 minute walk away and walk the last section of the journey to reduce the number of cars around school.
