Travel Smart

We are constantly trying to make healthier choices at Ladywood and that includes how we travel to school.

We are part of the Modeshift Sustainable Travel Accreditation and Recognition for School awards (STARS) - this recognizes the efforts made to persuade pupils and parents to choose greener and healthier ways of getting to and from school.

All about our Modeshift STARS award:

We are proud to say we have been awarded the GOLD Modeshift Stars award and continue to maintain this by encouraging our staff and children to make healthier choices in and outside of school.

We are thrilled to announce that our very own Miss Speake was the 'Excellence in Walking' 2021 winner of the Modeshift National Sustainable Travel Award, with her hard work and commitment to A Mile in my Shoes!

We understand that some pupils have no choice to come to school in the car but we encourage park and stride and car sharing. Please look at the link below on ideas of 'how to get to school'.

How to get to school

At Ladywood, we are encouraging our pupils to stay safe when wheeling and riding to school. Reception recently completed their scooter safe training with Travel Smarts Rob Bounds and Year 4/5 recently took part in Bikeability with Erewash School Sports Partnership.

We still have 2 adult scooters available for families to borrow and enjoy for two weeks at a time. If you wish to do this, please come and see Miss Robinson in Willow Tree Class.
