How we can help your school
Get Smarter Travel MK can provide support, advice and offer initiatives to schools to help encourage safe, sustainable and active travel.
We have lots of engaging initiatives that are available for teachers, parents and children across Milton Keynes to get involved and make travel to school a lot more fun.
- We offer cycle skills and training through Bikeability courses.
- Pupils can work with us to plan an Active Travel to School Map for their school.
- Get involved in various school challenges to increase physical activity.
For more information on activities for the academic year Sept 2018 – July 2019 read our guide for the year ahead.
All of the activities we’ve mentioned can contribute towards the Modeshift STARS award. Creating a travel plan can help you become a more active and sustainable school and be rewarded for it by working towards a bronze, silver or gold level on the national school awards. You can contact us for more information and advice.
Funding your activities
PE and sport premium funding can be applied for from the Department for Education for embedding physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school.
