Our School Streets programme

Our School Streets aim to support children to walk, cycle and scoot to school, by reducing traffic outside schools at the start and end of the school day

Why are the School Streets important?

The aim of the scheme is to:

  • tackle congestion
  • improve air quality at the school gates
  • make it easier and safer to walk and cycle to school
  • create a friendlier and calmer environment for everyone

How does the School Streets scheme work?

  • the street directly outside a school will have measures introduced to significantly reduce the volume of traffic when children are arriving in the morning and leaving in the afternoon
  • the street will become a pedestrian and cycle zone at these set times
  • motorised vehicles will not be allowed to enter the street between these times unless they have been granted an exemption. Exemptions will be kept to an absolute minimum to improve road safety for everyone in the vicinity of the school gates
  • the school streets will be in operation in term time only. Term time dates.

Where are the School Street closures in place?

There are currently 46 School Streets in our borough, outside 38 local schools - with more planned in the new school year. 

Camera-enforced restrictions are in place at 22 school locations - some of the camera-enforced restrictions affect more than one road around the school.
