School Streets

A School Street is when the roads immediately surrounding a school are closed to motor traffic. They operate Monday to Friday in term time, during set times at drop-off and pick-up. School Streets stay open to pedestrians, cyclists, and residents of the street who have an exemption.

Why start a School Street?

Our children's health and mental wellbeing is of the highest importance. That's why the council is committed to tackling our climate emergency and the escalating levels of pollution at peak times on our road network.

There are many benefits of School Streets:

  • Improved air quality - reduced traffic volumes leading to reductions in local emissions
  • Improved road safety - reduced risk of potential conflict between road traffic and pupils
  • Increased physical activity - making the school gate cleaner and safer will encourage more active travel to school
