WCPS is part of Merton's School Travel Plan initiative and STARS, TfL's accreditation scheme for London schools.
STARS inspires young Londoners to travel to school sustainably, actively, responsibly, and safely by championing walking, scooting and cycling.
This campaigns and works to reduce car use and increase walking, cycling and use of public transport amongst pupils and staff improving road safety, health and wellbeing.
Each year, in conjunction with the Borough of Merton and TfL, we submit our School Travel Plan. This term we enjoyed participating in Bike to School Week and our Fitness 500 Challenges encouraged the boys to be active.
We are Silver accredited and hope to achieve Gold accreditation for this academic year. As always, we encourage everyone to walk to school or park and walk whenever possible.
Merton's School Travel Plan can result in:
- Fewer cars and congestion around the school site.
- Healthier and more active pupils, families and staff.
- Less pollution around the school.
- Safer walking and cycling routes around the school.
