School road safety

We believe in making the journey to school as green and as safe as possible.

School road safety is a frequently expressed concern. At school drop off and pick up times the roads in the immediate vicinity of schools are especially busy. This often causes slower vehicle speeds and congestion, and can lead to frustration from motorists and residents.

We have developed a policy for investigating and responding to concerns about school road safety. Our aim is to reduce the risk of collisions and to make the road feel safer, to encourage more people to consider walking or cycling to and from school.

The links below give details of further resources that can help make the journey to and from school as green and safe as possible.
