Active Travel Awards

The Safe and Active Schools Programme has been developed to promote and support road safety and active travel activities in schools across Warwickshire. It is designed to help schools encourage active travel journeys whether that be for the whole journey by walking, cycling, or scooting or for part of the journey using park and stride modes. 

What is the Active Travel Award and how do we complete it

Schools achieve the Active Travel Award by completing a set of road safety and active travel activities throughout the year. A handbook containing a choice of activities is provided by email and is available as a paper copy on request. Each activity has a ‘points’ value of either 1, 2 or 3 and are earned when activities are completed. It is important that these are tallied up throughout the year. 

The minimum number of points which should be completed for the award 12 which will earn you a Bronze Award. Simply choose the activities that you want to do, tally them up, and you will see what award you are working towards! 

In the first few weeks of the Autumn Term, we will also ask each year group & class to complete our annual one-journey ‘hands up’ survey asking children how they are currently travelling to school. This must be carried out on the same day by all classes.  

Bronze Active Travel award medal Bronze award: 12 points over the year (4 points per term)

Silver Active Travel Award medal Silver award: 18 points over the year (6 points per term)

Gold Active Travel award medal Gold Award: 24 points over the year (8 points per term)
