Sustainable Travel to School

Sustainable travel to school

The number of children travelling to school by car has more than doubled in the last 20 years. One in five cars on the road at peak times is on the school run.

Walking and cycling are much healthier ways of getting to school. Children who get fresh air and exercise on the way to school are much more alert and attentive in class (ask any teacher) and it’s better for the environment.

The links below give you more information on what we’re doing to encourage more children to walk, cycle, travel by bus or car share on the journey to school.

This self help package for schools [PDF, 33Kb] gives advice and guidance on dealing with parking problems outside school and encouraging sustainable travel to school.
