Current Status: The School Streets Trial has ended. An evaluation is being developed and will be published on this page in Summer 2021.

What is a School Street?

A School Street is where a road outside a school temporarily closes to motor vehicles. It will open the streets to families on foot, bike or scooter at drop off and pick up times, giving everyone the space they need to get to school, and move around their local environment safely.

Who do these restrictions not apply to?

These temporary restrictions will not apply to residents, business premises on the street, emergency services, school transport, blue badge holders, deliveries, and carers of residents on the street.

When does the trial start?

The six week trial will commence from 15th March to 1st April and 19th April to 7th May 2021.

What times will the trial operate?

The project will involve restricting access outside each of the below schools for approximately one hour between 8.00am – 10.00am & 2.00pm – 4.00pm.
