Attend a TfL or borough school travel event

Attend a TfL or borough school travel event

About this activity

Suitable for all nurseries, primary and secondary schools.

Transport for London (TfL) events:

TfL holds annual seminars across the Capital to celebrate nurseries’ and schools’ commitment to active and safer travel, along with sharing innovative ideas to progress their school’s travel activities.

You and your pupils can attend these fun, interactive seminars during the Autumn Term each year. On the day you will have the chance to focus on your nursery or school’s key travel issues or behaviour you’d like to improve, and identify suitable activities to encourage positive change in these areas.  

Borough workshops and events:

Your borough may also hold events to celebrate your successes and workshops to help plan your activities for the year. Look out for invitations from your borough officer.

How to evidence your activity

  • Involve your borough officer: Share your ideas, agree your objectives and discuss any challenges you face

  • Sign in to STARS to add your story. Add photos from the day, include pictures of the exercises you completed or resources you used at the event, and your pupils’ feedback
