We are pleased to inform you that Transport for London (TfL) has confirmed that St Vincent’s has achieved gold STARS (Sustainable Travel; Active, Responsible, Safe) accreditation for the academic year 2018/19. This is in recognition of all the wonderful work St Vincent’s has completed as part of our school travel plan to encourage safer travel and reduce car use in your school.
The work undertaken by St Vincent’s combined with all the STARS schools in London, has had a huge impact in reducing the number of vehicles making journeys on London’s roads.
Schools who take part in STARS have pupils who are more active; STARS schools show an eight per cent increase in the number of pupils walking on average, and three per cent increase in the number of pupils cycling.
Thank you once again for all your continued support in making this programme a success across London.
