Travelling to school
The School Travel Plan (STP) initiative was introduced in 2009 to encourage all schools to promote sustainable travel, in order to reduce congestion and pollution and increase healthier modes of travelling to school. The STP gives information on how people get to and from the school, identifies problems with safe and sustainable travel and sets objectives to resolve these issues.
Why Have a School Travel Plan?
Although not a mandatory policy, the Academy Council of Oasis Academy Putney has agreed that a regular review of the STP is the most effective way of identifying issues with any aspect of school travel and provides information to all stakeholders in a single, publicly available document.
