School Travel Plans and the Curriculum
The six step guide to creating your travel plan links to Curriculum for Excellence – Health and Well Being Framework and helps achieve Eco-Schools status; see diagram below which is also available to download as a JPEG image at the bottom of this page.
The following text from Curriculum for Excellence guidance highlights the experiences and outcomes that are relevant to School Travel Planning.
