Junior Travel Ambassadors

The Junior Travel Ambassador (JTA) scheme encourages peer-to-peer engagement and will give you and your school all the resources and guidance you need to promote safer, active and independent travel within the school community. It’s a fun and engaging way to spread important messages and build skills for life.

At Eversley we have 9 JTA’s in year 6. This year the JTA’s have held road safety competitions as well as holding two assembles for each key stage on Road Safety. They also held a ‘Be Bright Be Seen Day’ and Eversley was part of ‘The Big Pedal’.

Our JTAs for 2018/1019 are to be confirmed.

 

 

What is the role of a JTA?

A JTA is responsible for promoting active travel, walking, cycling or scooting, and road safety. As teams within their school community they also promote independent travel to their peers as they prepare for the transition from primary to secondary school.

As part of the promotion, JTAs consider running the following:

  • Carrying out assemblies
  • Conducting surveys and classroom talks
  • Classroom talks
  • Helping to complete the school travel planner
  • Learning how to use the TfL Journey Planner
  • Running competitions
  • Scheduled
