We have seven steps to compete to get our Travel Flag.
This theme aims to increase the number of students walking, cycling, scooting, using public transport or carpooling to school.
Step 1: Green-Schools Committee Who sits on your Green-Schools committee? How often does your committee meet? Upload an example of minutes taken from one of your Green-Schools committee meetings.
Step 2: Environmental Review Provide us with details of your Environmental Review. This includes actions such as carrying out travel surveys; undertaking walkability and cycleability audits and surveying traffic.
Step 3: Action Plan Please upload your current Action Plan with quantifiable targets (eg. 10% increase in students walking to school) where applicable. Remember to include future targets/planned actions alongside present and past actions. A template for your action plan can be downloaded from the Resources section of the Green-Schools website.
Step 4: Monitoring and Evaluation Describe how you monitor and evaluate progress for the Travel Theme and maintain the Litter & Waste, Energy and Water themes. In this section you are also asked to compare the percentage of journeys taken to school using various modes in years one and two and report on the number of WOW/COW/SOW days held.
Step 5: Curriculum Links Please give the ages/school years of students involved in curriculum work and information on the topic or subject areas addressed. You can find a template to upload your curriculum links information in the resources section on our website.
Step 6: Informing and Involving Describe your Day of Action. How is the whole school informed of and involved in the Green-Schools programme. How is the wider community informed of and involved in the Green-Schools programme?
Step 7: Green Code Please reproduce your school’s Green Code. Describe how the Green Code was agreed and how it has been integrated into school life.
