Greswold is very proud of being awarded a Modeshift STARS accreditation for our work promoting sustainable travel. 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. In the past academic year Greswold has offered Scootability in Year 1 and taster Bikeability sessions in Years 3 and 4. Year 5 have taken part in a week-long Bikeability course and Year 6 have worked with members of Solihull's team to promote walking or using public transport. We also can't forget Year 2 learning road safety as part of their Walk Smart programme and the whole school taking part in Walk to School Week.
The Modeshift scheme encourages schools right across the country to join in a major effort to increase levels of sustainable and active travel and in so doing, improve the health and well-being of children and young people. We will look to build on our successes when school begins again in September.
