Healthy school committee includes pupils, parents, governors and teachers. It promotes healthy eating and exercise through activities such as: the alligator, walk to school and share a healthy breakfast.
School travel plan committee
As part of the school’s work towards our School Travel Plan, our Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs) encourage children to be aware of their safety on the roads. They organise events, such as Olympic Sport Star Day, where pupils dressed as a sports star to raise awareness of road safety. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, we were unable to appoint JRSO’s during 2020/2021, however the Eco Warriors willingly took over that role and have done an excellent job!
Walk to School
Junior Road Safety Officers (JRSOs):
The Junior Road Safety Officers are responsible for running our road safety campaigns, Be Bright Be Seen sales, Walk to School campaigns and our Go for Gold Scheme. They are appointed after interviews held by the previous JRSOs at the end of term. The current Eco Warriors will be holding interviews in Autumn 2021 to appoint JRSO’s for the new academic year.
Keep watching this page to hear from them!
Sustainable Travel to School:
We would like to take this opportunity to thank those of you who have travelled sustainably to school, whether this is by walking, scooting or cycling. It would be fantastic if we could get even greater numbers travelling to school sustainably this year! Travelling to school sustainably is good for the environment, fitness levels and our health – even once a week can make a difference! Remember, using our park and stride scheme counts as travelling to school sustainably and is a great first step.
Mode Shift Stars:
We are currently in the process of submitting our 2021 application for Mode Shift Stars. We were delighted to announce that, after reviewing our travel plan actions and achievements for 2018-19, Mode Shift Stars awarded us the Silver National Travel Award. We will continue to try and improve our travel plan actions and go for gold!
Dates for the Diary:
We are very pleased to be able to offer a Park & Stride facility at Holmer Green Junior School.
As you can see from the ‘Go For Gold Exclusion Zone’ we have agreements in place with various proprietors at points of interest, where parents can park their cars and walk their child to the school.
The links below will show the local bus timetables and routes and there is also a link for Chiltern Railways;
If you require any further information regarding the Park & Stride facility, please feel free to ask in the school office. firstname.lastname@example.org
Go for Gold
The school actively participates in the Walk to School scheme. We are currently using the travel tracker, ‘walk in Wednesdays’ and also taking part in ‘Footstep Fridays’.
