Emergency Active Travel Fund Tranche 2: School Streets Trial
What did the School Streets Trial involve?
The street immediately outside the school was temporarily closed to motor vehicles. It opened the street to families on foot, bike or scooter at drop off and pick up times, giving everyone more space to get to school and move around their local environment safely.
These temporary restrictions did not apply to residents, business premises on the street, emergency services, school transport, blue badge holders, deliveries, and carers of residents on the street.

The 6-week trial operated between 15 March to 1 April and 19 April to 7 May 2021.
