Eco School



We’ve linked up with the team at Modeshift Stars to help our school take action on transport. Supported by the Department for Transport, STARS is the National School Travel Awards scheme that recognises schools that demonstrate excellence in supporting cycling, walking and other forms of sustainable travel. The scheme encourages schools to join in a major effort to increase levels of sustainable and active travel improving the health and well-being of children and young people.  


We have produced a useful guide to encourage parents and children to be active and healthy and look after the environment.  This guide promotes a 5 minute walking zone around Darras Hall Primary School.  We would like to encourage all families to support this initiative.  An active journey includes walking, scooting, cycling, and even park and stride if you are able to park a little distance away from school and walk the remainder of your journey.


For those of you that live out of the Darras Hall catchment area, please see the link for local buses.  Hard copies of local bus timetables are available from the school entrance.
