We received some excellent news at the beginning of the Spring term. Our school has been awarded the Golden Boot Trophy for the Autumn Term 2013.
Rob Sambrooks of Streetscene wrote:‘The trophy is awarded each term to a school who have done especially well on the WoW (walk once a week) scheme and succeeded in getting more pupils walking to school. Last term Sir Thomas Abney showed a month on month improvement in the WoW scheme with 88% of pupils qualifiying for a badge in December, and we have been particularly impressed by the enthusiasm with which you have adopted the WoW ‘Travel Tracker’ application for monitoring journeys to school. I understand that MP Diane Abbott was very impressed by what she saw in terms of sustainable travel initiatives when she visited the school recently. Congratulations on an outstanding term’s work! Currently there are 25 Hackney schools taking part in WoW so the competition was strong.’ Rob will come in to school during our Achievement Assemblies on Monday 20th January 2014 to present the trophy.
