Fordingbridge Federation works hard to encourage a more active school run and a deeper connection to both the outdoors and local community, which in turn supports mental wellbeing. We work in partnership with The Hampshire Travel Team with support from Modeshift STARS a Centre of Excellence for the delivery of Effective Travel Plans in Education and Living Streets to help achieve this.
The STARS Education scheme recognises schools and other educational establishments that have shown excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable and active travel. Launched in 2008, the STARS Education scheme is supported by the Department for Transport and has seen over 1,400 schools in England achieve accreditation since its inception. In the Autumn and Spring of each year, schools, local authorities and key partners come together for the National STARS School Travel Awards which recognise the outstanding schools from each local authority.
