Josephine Butler Primary Campus are delighted to have been awarded The Modeshift Stars Bronze Award. 

Modeshift STARS is the national schools awards scheme that has been established to recognise schools that have demonstrated excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable travel.

The scheme encourages schools across the country to join in a major effort to increase levels of sustainable and active travel in order to improve the health and well-being of children and young people.

The Bronze Award is  for schools that  that demonstrate a commitment to promoting sustainable transport by conducting an annual survey, identifying travel issues and solutions and delivering a range of travel initiatives. Our children have enjoyed taking part in ‘The Big Pedal’, Walk to School, Bikeability and looking at safer parking. We trialled a Walking bus and even did a plan of @park and Walk’.
