We just completed our second "Hands Up" survey for the year. We decided to carry out the survey on the non-active days for a surprise to make it more accurate. We carried the second survey on what I called a Wacky Wednesday surprise on the 25th of November. Our usual allocated Active Travel days are Tuesday and Friday. Therefore, it was totally unexpected, as our allocated active travel was on the previous day!
The survey comparison shows the driving trend has reduced slightly from 56% to 54% and our active transport has increased slightly from 43% to 45%. These survey results provide a fantastic way to see evidence of positive change. This is an encouraging trend, and we need to keep the effort up.
As mentioned in my recent post we are reflecting on the different ways to continue to educate students about active travel to and from school. We are using posters, school’s outdoor notice board and encouraging the ‘drive, park and walk initiative’. Reinforcing this through whole staff memos, messages in the newsletter, and emails, with the aim to keep promoting active travel every day, and not just for the allocated Active Travel Days!
