GOLD ACCREDITATION Tiffin School has achieved Gold accreditation status for its Travel Plan thanks to the hard work and dedication of the Tiffin’s Year 10 TfL Youth Travel Ambassadors. This ranks Tiffin School in the top 10% of London Borough Schools to achieve this level of success. Schools are required to develop a travel plan which promotes safe and sustainable travel to pupils, parents and staff. The plan must meet criteria set by the Department of Education (DfE) and the Department for Transport (DfT) and must also have their travel plans approved by Transport for London. Travel plans usually:  improve facilities for pedestrians and cyclists (showers, lockers and cycle parking)  promote cycling and provide cycle training
