School Travel Plans

School Travel Plans can have numerous advantages for schools and it is hoped that by raising awareness of travel and health issues at an early age, children will be able to make informed travel choices throughout their lives.

Funding is available for state schools through both the Department for Children, Schools and Families’ (DCSF) Capital Grant until March 2010, and for all schools through the County Council’s Safer Routes to School (SRTS) Programme.

Resources and incentives are available through the team to assist schools with the development of their travel plans to promote sustainable travel. If you are interested, please contact the team. Links to curriculum materials are also available on the School Travel Plan website.

Walking Buses are one way of encouraging walking for part or all of the school journey. If you are interested in a resource pack or would like some advice/visit, please contact the team.
