Modeshift Stars Award
Warwick Road School is excited to be taking part in the Modeshift STARS Education Awards Scheme.
Modeshift STARS is the national schools awards scheme that has been established to recognise schools that have demonstrated excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable travel. The scheme encourages schools across the country to join in a major effort to increase levels of sustainable and active travel in order to improve the health and well-being of children and young people.
STARS received the backing of the Department for Transport in November 2014 and is now recognised as the National School Travel Awards scheme.
There are four levels of accreditation that we can achieve Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. We are pleased to be the first school in Kirklees to achieve Platinum accreditation.
By taking part in the STARS award our aim is to encourage all pupils and staff to walk to school where possible. This will impact positively on the health and wellbeing of our children and staff as well as reducing congestion around school helping to keep everyone safe.
