Travelling to & from school
What is a School Travel Plan?
A School Travel Plan is a document that:
Demonstrates a schools commitment to environmental and community concerns and the overall welfare of its pupils
States the way in which a school intends to help reduce the use of cars for the school journey, and for improving safety, the environment, health and the social skills of it's pupils
Is a whole school initiative and demonstrates support from children, staff, parents, governors and the wider community.
Aims to give parents and pupils the choice of traveling by walking, cycling and public transport with confidence thereby reducing congestion at the school gate.
Looks in detail at pupil's needs on the school journey and attempts to find suitable solutions for unique situations at each school.
Has clearly stated aims, objectives and targets which are achievable, measurable and are supported by the whole school community
School Travel Plans also play a key role in Safer Routes to School projects and act as guides for possible transport and highway infrastructure improvements
The school travel plan is currently being assessed by Hull City Council highways agency as part of the planning process for our school expansion.
