The Head of The Towers Convent school, Upper Beeding, Carole Baker, was delighted to be presented with the school’s Travel Mark Level 1 certificate by local county councillor Derek Deedman on Friday 25th May.

The school has been working very hard to make positive changes to the way the pupils travel to keep them safe in and around the school site including working with Schools Liaison PC Keeley, as well as improving their minibus routes to promote a more sustainable route to school and reduce the impact of the school run on the surrounding area.

The school is now working with the CDBS (Community Development and Big Society Service) Team to look at improvements to the roads and signs around the school to raise awareness of the school entrances and encourage drivers to travel slowly past the school.
