_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Free Travel 5-21 years of age
Please read the information below about Free Travel for those aged 5-21 and complete the survey if you can.
Do you have a child aged 5-16, or are you a young person aged 12-21? If so, please complete our short travel survey for a chance to win up to £250 in Love2Shop vouchers.
The Scottish Government will soon be launching the Free Bus Travel Scheme for young people between the ages of 5 and 21. This aims to encourage greener travel patterns,and increase opportunities for young people to engage in employment, education and social activities and not be excluded due to travel costs. Transport Scotland will monitor the scheme as it progresses to check on use and impact. The first step is to try and understand current travel patterns so that any changes after the scheme is introduced can be identified.
We would be grateful if parents/carers of younger children (i.e. those aged 5-16), or young people aged 12-21 themselves, could complete this short travel survey. The questionnaire asks about current travel behaviour, and your thoughts about bus travel generally and the free bus travel. This should take no more than 10 minutes to do.
Contact Us: If you have any questions about the work or problems completing the questionnaire, please contact our Project Manager, Elaine Wilson-Smith, at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0131 677 5522.

The closing date for all responses is Monday, 24 January 2022. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

It is split into three stages:
Nursery – The Proud Cloud Primary 1 - 3 – The Community Award Primary 4 – 7 – The Awesome Award
The names and logos have been created and designed by the pupils and appear on all the booklets and medals.
The wider achievement programme gives all pupils the chance to develop independence and learn new skills. These skills can be transferred into everyday life situations both in school and home life and will help children learn to set and complete their own individual targets.
We are encouraging all our children within the school and nursery to participate. Currently life is very different for us all, so this is a great opportunity for us all to learn something new. Don’t forget the whole family could participate in this event.
