School travel plans

A School Travel Plan is a written document that outlines a series of practical steps for improving children’s safety on the journey to and from school.   It aims to encourage schools to identity and solve problems associated with the school journey e.g. 20mph zones, cycle storage etc. 

The School Travel Plan also encourages sustainable forms of transport that help reduce congestion, pollution and ultimately improves the environment around the school and local community.

The plans are produced by the schools themselves and do not necessarily include physical works but instead are a way of living and learning.
