Over the past few years, we have worked hard to steadily build on from our Bronze award to achieving our Platinum Modeshift Stars award. Whether we are celebrating Walk to School Week, WOW or Road Safety initiatives we always aim to promote and encourage sustainable and active travel.”

The Headteacher of Oak Lodge School, Mr Kieron Hudson said: “We are delighted to be named the Modeshift STARS regional winner for the South East of England. Our mission statement talks about preparing young people for adult life, and for our SEND pupils to have a good understanding of safe travel is a vital part of their 'knowledge for life'. We are committed to our partnership with Hampshire Transport to ensure the most efficient travel arrangements for our pupils attending school. I am very proud of the hard work that goes into achieving such an award and I am pleased that our efforts have been recognised'
