TfL Explorers Ambassadors
About this activity
Suitable for year 5 and 6 pupils. Supports the PSHE and Citizenship National Curriculum.
NB: We’re bringing together all the TfL education programmes, including STARS, under one exciting new umbrella programme called TfL Travel for Life. They will be the same great programmes, but with a new name and a new look, easier online process and dedicated support team. STARS for primary schools will be renamed TfL Explorers. STARS for secondary schools will be renamed TfL Pioneers.
The TfL Explorers Ambassadors scheme encourages safer, active and independent travel within the school community, with a focus on year 6 pupils as they prepare for the transition to secondary school.
The scheme involves recruiting a team of TfL Explorers Ambassadors; year 5 and 6 pupils who work to promote active travel and road safety to their peers through a range of activities.
TfL provides all the resources and guidance needed to set up and run your school’s own TfL Explorers Ambassadors team.
Running the scheme
With most of the work done by TfL Explorers Ambassadors, your school must fully support the scheme and allocate a school TfL Explorers Ambassadors lead. This can be either a teacher or learning assistant who oversees the TfL Explorers Ambassadors team and supports them with their projects.
You will also need to create a dedicated TfL Explorers Ambassadors noticeboard to share the latest active travel news and promote current activities.
For further information on the TfL Explorers Ambassadors scheme contact your local council school travel advisor or road safety officer.
This activity supports the Vision Zero target to eliminate death and serious injuries on London’s streets.
