Three Haringey schools were winners at TfL’s STARS Top School’s awards event at City Hall this week. The awards were given to schools who are doing brilliant work to encourage students and staff to walk, cycle, scoot or use public transport for their journey to and from school rather than driving.
The three winning schools were:
• Stamford Hill Primary School who won ‘School of the Region North London’ award for promoting healthy lifestyles and working with local communities and charities.
• Crowland Primary School who won ‘Excellence in Walking’ award for increasing the number of pupils who walk to school by 13% in a year using their 5 minute Walking Zone map and creating a school song
• Rhodes Avenue Primary School who won ‘Excellence in Scooting’ award have 28% of pupils scooting to school and under 4% travelling by car despite increasing in size.
Elin Weston, Haringey’s Cabinet Member for Children and Families said, “This is a fantastic achievement for Haringey schools and shows the progress we are making to be one of the most cycling and pedestrian friendly boroughs in London.”
