School Travel Plan
Tower's School Travel Plan
We were the first school in the borough to have achieved OUTSTANDING
Level in Sustainable Travel awarded by Transport for London. Our lead
professional and our Road Safety Officers presented a presentation about
our work to other professional in the borough at a sustainable Travel
conference at the CEME centre.
Through our School Travel Plan we have consulted with the whole school
community. Parents, pupils and staff have completed surveys that inform
us how pupils and staff travel to school and how they would like to travel.
The surveys also inform us of any problems faced on journeys to and from
school and gives the whole school community an opportunity to suggest
new ideas to help solve these problems.
Our original target was to reduce the number of car journeys to school and
increase other methods of sustainable travel, e.g. walking, cycling, public
transport and car sharing. Consultation is an ongoing part of the School
Travel Plan process and each year the information provided feeds our new
targets and objectives
Our aims are to have less congestion outside the school gate, increased
awareness of sustainable transport, healthier, fitter children, more journeys
by bicycle, walking and public transport, reduced pollution from the home
to school journey, less road accidents now and for our children in the future,
and our Year 6 Leavers prepared for their journeys to secondary school.
