Ealing’s junior travel ambassador (JTA) annual programme
Programme for 2019/20
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.
We have a programme of activities to support JTAs in schools.
This includes ideas for events, competitions, bulletins to read in assemblies, awards and other free resources.
Register your JTAs
If you have any kind of pupil council that promote road safety and active travel, please register them here (Wufoo.com). Registering your JTAs allows the School Travel Team to provide support!

Health Fair game (pdf)
