Modeshift STARS

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 every school in England (outside of London) can participate in Modeshift STARS for free.

If your school has already delivered a number of activities designed to promote walking, cycling and other forms of sustainable school travel they can be logged and recorded on the Modeshift STARS website. Modeshift STARS has over 100 initiatives that are recognised for the promotion of sustainable travel and by delivering a range of activities in school you can work towards Modeshift STARS Bronze, Silver and Gold Accreditation.
