JTA

Welcome to the

Junior Travel Ambassadors!

 

 

This exciting scheme promotes active and safer travel to and from school. Junior Travel Ambassador (JTA) is aimed at Year 5 pupils and empowers them to make their own decisions about what they think needs to change to improve road safety for their school.

 

JTAs also encourages pupils to get more active and lead healthier lifestyles. The Junior Travel Ambassadors (JTAs) are pupils from Year 5 who are responsible for promoting active travel such as walking, cycling, scooting and road safety.

 

The JTA’s are enthusiastic and love doing competitions and assemblies. They have organised events for both “Walk to School Week” and “The Big Pedal”. They enjoy the support and contact they have with Maree Richards, Road Safety Officer at Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC), she gives them advice and helps with anything they are planning to do.

 

The JTAs work with the school JTA mentors – Miss Johnson and Mrs Davey, to carry out assemblies, conduct surveys, and help input data.  They help plan, run and judge competitions and special events each year.

JTAs term of office is for one year and the JTAs meet regularly to share ideas and opinions, make plans and organise events.

 

The Junior Travel Ambassador scheme is run by CCC.  The scheme was originally launched by TfL (Transport for London).

Upcoming Events

 

Anti-Idling campaign

The JTAs will be hosting an assembly with two guests who are campaigning for cleaner air. 

 

Did you know….

 

  • Unnecessary idling of a car engine is a traffic offence
  • Air pollution can cause serious health issues
  • If a car is left idling for more than 10 seconds it uses more fuel than the cost of restarting the engine
  • Excess idling can damage car engines, damage cylinders, spark plugs and exhaust systems.

 

Please may we respectfully request, if you come to school early, please wrap up warm with a coat and a jumper and switch off your engine. Our school community do not want to be exposed to excess fumes. This is also very bad for children with chest conditions and asthma. Please don’t be an engine idler.

For the health and well-being of pupils, families and staff, please turn your engine off once you’ve parked safely, legally and with consideration, as pollution reduces air quality.

Abbie Ayre Visits All Saints!

 

 

Years 4 and 5 were treated to a Cambridgeshire County Council-funded performance from Abbie Ayre and the Shed of Science theatre production.  The performance had a strong message about the benefits of walking to school.  It was a fantastic performance! 

 

We even made it into the newspaper!
