Haseltine Travel PlanLondon Borough of Lewisham school travel and accreditation plan
To achieve the Gold Standard, Haseltine had to demonstrate exceptional results in at least one of the following categories: walking/scooter, cycling, road safety, public transport or student lead project.
In 2017 and 2018 we have been awarded the Transport for London Stars Gold Level for our school travel plan. We have been involved in many projects recently which are ongoing.
We have many bikes in school, including balance bikes and scooters for our younger children. Our older children take part in Cycle Confident. We have activities in the playground to encourage road safety. We hold many events to encourage children walking to school and our Junior Road Safety Ambassadors (JRSA’s) ensure that our children are travelling to school more safely.
We work with our community to ensure safer parking around the school and with the local authority to reduce the number of heavy vehicles using Haseltine Road.
A new incentive is to reduce the number of cars idling at the school drop-off and pick-up to reduce pollution around our school.
“Our job is to make travelling to school safer and more active and help our friends get ready for their journey to Secondary School.
We got GOLD!
Have fun walking to school…”

Bringing the School Travel Plan to life!
Last term our Drama after School club children, Miss Macnab and Francis Smith from Act Smart have been devising their own performance to show to the whole school what STP is all about using an original script.
“Years ago the pollution was like a fog/smog hovering over our city but today the air pollution is invisible and is causing lots of harm to our health”
