Barley Close first to achieve Bronze Modeshift Accreditation!

Barley Close is the first school in South Gloucestershire to achieve Bronze accreditation from Modeshift STARS (Sustainable Travel Accreditation and Recognition for Schools) for encouraging more of their children and staff to use sustainable methods of transport to get to school each day.

Road Safety Officers from South Gloucestershire Council and Living Streets attended the school recently to present the children, staff and governors with the award.  Jo Williams, Head Teacher at Barley Close Community Primary School said:

 

“We are delighted to be the first school in South Gloucestershire to attain the Bronze award and we have already started working towards our Silver!  As we are part of the Walk to School Access project we could easily demonstrate we had meet the criteria to gain Bronze and Andy and Catherine helped explain how to do this. 

It is fantastic to gain recognition for our commitment to getting more children actively travelling to school and the children feel happier and healthier and they arrive at school refreshed, fit and ready to learn. More families actively travelling to school means fewer cars on the road during the school run and helps to reduce congestion and pollution at the school gates.”
