MP Smarter Travel to deliver School Travel Plan programme on behalf of Newham Council

MP Smarter Travel has recently been awarded a contract with London Borough of Newham to deliver their School Travel Planning programme for the 2018-19 academic year. Since 2012, MP Smarter Travel has delivered 22 School Travel Planning programmes on behalf of local authorities. This will be our first such programme with LB Newham.

Our key task will be to increase engagement and STARS accreditation with the borough's 109 schools. In addition, our tasks will include:

  • Hosting workshops to secure engagement, share ideas and provide training for school champions;
  • Integrating School Travel Plans with key campaign weeks (e.g. Walk to School Week, Road Safety Week, and the Big Pedal); and
  • Gathering detailed and up-to-date information about transport-related issues around schools; including walking/cycling infrastructure, traffic calming and disability access.

If you are looking for support with sustainable school travel or other engagement projects, feel free to get in touch.
