Gold Stars for Gomer: the first in Gosport

Modeshift STARS is the national schools awards scheme that has been established to recognise schools that have demonstrated excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable travel. The scheme encourages schools across the country to join in a major effort to increase levels of sustainable and active travel in order to improve the health and well-being of children and young people. Every school in England (outside of London) can participate in Modeshift STARS for free. On completion of an application for Modeshift STARS, schools will automatically have a brand new national standard School Travel Plan.

Gomer Junior received their Silver award in the Summer Term 2017. With the support of Mrs Bottriell leading our JRSO and BikeIt! Team and the cooperation of the Gomer community we have been awarded our GOLD. This is brilliant and we are the first school in Gosport to have the award and 1 of 5 we beleive in Hampshire to have received Gold. Congratulations also to a school in Sarisbury Green who have just received Gold too.

This superb achievement was shared with the whole school yesterday. The JRSO and BikeIt! Team are planning a whole school celebration. Brilliant – Go Gomer!
