School Travel Plan

At St Joseph’s, we are always keen to promote healthier, more environmentally friendly journeys to and from our school.

In October 2016 St Joseph's received the ModeShift STARS (School Travel Accredited and Recognised for Schools) Silver travel award for delivering above and beyond what is normally expected of a school in its commitment to promoting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable travel amongst pupils, families and staff.

 

5 and 10 Minute Walking Zone

In May 2017 we launched our 'Travel to St Joseph's Walking Zone' map showing the 5 & 10 minute walking zones from our school. This encourages families to walk for at least part of their journey to and from school.

These maps have been produced with the help of Bucks County Council, and funded by Public Health and the Greater Aylesbury Local Area Forum. They increase opportunities for healthy exercise, help to reduce traffic and congestion around the school and promote walking to school to all our families.

What are the benefits of sustainable travel options? 

  • Fewer cars and to reduce congestion on the roads near the school
  • Improves fitness and health
  • Safer walking (including ‘Park and Stride’) and cycling routes around the school
  • Less pollution near the school
  • Greater awareness of road safety
  • Decreases dependence on the car
  • Improves wider community links with local residents and Police Community Support Officers
  • It’s fun to travel to school by cycling, walking or scooting!
