Primary Schools

My Journey is working with schools in Hampshire to encourage alternatives to car travel on the school run. By encouraging walking, cycling, scooting or using public transport for school journeys your school can help to reduce congestion and pollution in the local area making it a nicer place to live and learn.
 
We have lots of fantastic and engaging initiatives that are inspiring teachers, parents and children across the county to get involved and make travel to school a lot more fun. We offer cycle skills training, Sustrans Bike It programme, and Park & Stride advice to name a few. All of these initiatives can contribute to Modeshift STARS national schools awards for your school. We offer a wide range of resources for ready-made lesson planning right across the Primary curriculum, and general school travel plan resources to support challenges and competitions throughout the term.
 
Some activities may have limited availability due to funding, however PE and sport premium funding can be applied for from the Department for Education for embeding physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school, active playgrounds and active teaching.
