Why survey?

children in school

All behaviour change programs need pre and post-intervention data to measure the success that they have achieved. Active School Travel is no different!

This month, our all-important pre-intervention survey has been taking place in all our new first year schools. Teachers in every classroom have been surveying their students every morning for a week to provide their school’s baseline data. Without this data, we cannot measure the impact that your school’s efforts throughout the year have had on your students’ travel behaviour.

Throughout the year, this survey will be repeated once a week as we track travel behaviour change. It provides important insights to help you plan and implement your own active travel events and initiatives.

Just as importantly, the data you collect forms the basis of the monthly “Golden Boot” award; offering your school the opportunity to be recognised at a citywide level for outstanding active results.
