School Travel Plans

School Travel Plans

What Are They?

  • School Travel Plans address issues relevant to journeys to and from school, including concerns about safety, health and the local environment.
  • School Travel Plans involve the whole school and can include proposals to reduce car use and increase the options for pupils, parents and staff to travel by more sustainable modes such as walking, cycling, car sharing and public transport.

Most Worcestershire schools have a Travel Plan and, as a result, are seeing an increase in physical activity levels among their pupils and reduced traffic congestion around the school gates.

Schools which have not yet developed a Plan, can download and follow the documents below for guidance on how it can be done:

It is recommended that plans which are more than 3 years old should be updated and, again, the above links can be used to do this.

School Travel Plans should be regularly reviewed (at least annually) and when it's time to do this, schools can download and look at the School Travel Plan review template (PDF 91 KB).

Sustainable Modes of Travel to School Strategy

This document sets out the County Council's commitment to make sustainable travel (including walking, cycling and public transport) a realistic and attractive option on the school journey.
