Schools are working with Local Council to try to improve safety for children on the journey to school, reduce congestion around the school and encourage more parents, children and staff to walk or use public transport to get to school.

It is appreciated that the school run can affect residents adversely and part of our school travel plan will look at ways of alleviating parking and congestion problems around the school. Therefore, we are seeking your views and comments with regard to improvements that could be made to the local area. These improvements could be engineering measures directed at traffic hotspots or means to alleviate the congestion affecting the local roads.

Please answer the questions below which will be used to compile the review of the travel plan.
