Title: TravelMatters Website

Organisation: Gateshead Council

TravelMatters is a website dedicated to promoting sustainable travel to pupils in the classroom.

After many years of helping schools develop School Travel Plans, Gateshead Councilís school travel advisers developed the new site. It contains ready-to-use resources for teachers to download, as well as an interactive area for pupils.

All resources have been specifically designed to promote walking, cycling and use of public transport. TravelMatters is an efficient and cost-effective method to help meet the statutory duty under the Education & Inspections Act (2006).

Resources include lesson plans and PowerPoints (for use on interactive whiteboard), templates for classroom displays, and role play and performance-based learning for pupils. The site also incorporates the Try Travel Matters page, where sample resources may be viewed

An annual licence for Travel Matters can be purchased by a local authority for all their schools, or alternatively schools may purchase on an individual basis.
