School Travel Plan
At Markyate Village School, we want all our children to travel to and from school safely everyday. To help achieve this, the school promotes Road Safety in class lessons and in weekly assemblies. We communicate road safety guidelines with parents and wider stakeholders through our weekly newsletters. We also run a number of whole school initiatives by teaming our with Hertfordshire County Council and their Modeshift program.
This is a nationwide program that provides ideas, support and resources to schools to educate children and their families on road safety near schools as well as in the wider community.
Markyate Village School has currently a Green level Travel Plan. We aim to achieve the Bronze level by the end of this academic year by running a number of training and educational programs with the children, parents and families.
