Junior Travel Ambassadors (JTAs)
“TfL's Junior Travel Ambassador (JTA) 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 JTAs; year 5 and 6 pupils who work to promote active travel and road safety to their peers through a range of activities.” (Source https://stars.tfl.gov.uk/explore/idea/details/26)
Here at Hawksmoor School we are delighted to have our own team of Junior Travel Ambassadors or JTAs.
Our JTAs meet weekly and are responsible for promoting active travel to school by walking, scooting, cycling or even by park and stride.
The JTAs take assemblies and devise ways to get our school community more active on the way to and from School. They research and conduct surveys of our active travel and carry out class talks.
Our school community is encouraged to support the hard work of the JTAs by being active on the way to and from school.
