School Travel Plan
The Walking Bubble has been created to provide voluntary car-free zones around schools, encouraging everyone who can to 'Get Active' on their journeys to and from school.
The Bubble will encourage families that have to travel by car to park at least 5-minute away from school, creating a safer space for walking, cycling and scooting. By placing these restrictions, we hope to reduce the number of cars parked on pavements outside and close to the school gates, which as you will know, is one of the main concerns that parents have when walking to school.
Reducing vehicles and creating more space will also make it much easier for families to socially distance and feel safer around school gates
Parents Parking Promise
The area outside our school is busy in the morning and at the end of the school day. Parents who park close to entrances act irresponsibly, potentially placing children in danger. The ‘School Keep Clear’ Zig Zags should maintain an area free from parked cars. This allows children and parents walking in and out of school to cross safely, where they can see and be seen by approaching traffic.
Many children are driven to school when they could easily walk part or all of the way. Walking has various benefits: it
- Helps keep children fit and healthy;
- Develops traffic awareness skills;
- Keeps the environment cleaner;
- Reduces traffic outside school at starting and finishing times.
By completing the form below, you are undertaking to keep parked cars away from the area outside of school therefore protecting the lives of all the children who attend our school.
When you complete the form, the school will issue you with a car sticker which shows your commitment to the Parents’ Parking Promise. Hopefully your example will encourage other parents to do the same. Click Here To Complete the Form
