JTA (Junior Travel Ambassadors)

JTAs are a pupil council that specialise in promoting active and sustainable travel as well as road safety. They are usually comprised of year 5 and 6 pupils but can be other year groups. Pupils get together on a regular basis with a staff lead to discuss ways they can promote and encourage active and sustainable travel and plan and deliver activities they can run themselves.

Improving our local area

JTA pupils had noticed that on more and more mornings, Radcliffe Way was very congested with vehicles, which was unhealthy and made crossing hazardous. As a result they completed the hands up survey with all classes and established that the large majority of pupils travel to school actively (walk, scoot, bike or bus). An increasing number of staff walk or cycle but the majority still drive however most have arrived significantly before the pupils so do not impact on the congestions. As a result they initially asked staff and parents about the main issued they noticed on their journey to school. Following the informal questions, they produced a survey with the key issued identified to establish a fuller picture of parents views. As a result of the survey, the JTAs wrote to their local MP and local councillors to reduce the congestion and crossing concerns.
