The number of School Streets in the UK has been rising steadily in recent years. In London there were just 76 School Streets in 2019 – there are nearly 600 schemes across nearly every London borough, with a quarter of primary schools now located on School Streets. 

School Streets effectively address the congestion, road safety and air quality concerns that many schools experience. Monitoring of schemes has revealed how they are enabling children and families to safely walk, wheel, scoot or cycle to school. And by making active travel possible for everyone, they help contribute to efforts to tackle the health crisis and climate change.

As awareness of new schemes grows, the case for School Streets becomes ever more compelling. Not only do they improve the quality of people’s lives locally – they make a difference for entire communities. But the success of a scheme depends on how consultation, implementation, enforcement and monitoring are carried out.

Session 1: Embarking on the journey

Embarking on the journey: The case for School Streets is becoming ever more compelling. But what’s the best way of getting from proposal to implementation? What is the process for choosing suitable sites? How do you effectively liaise with schools? What’s the best way to communicate your aims to parents and local residents? Would local authorities benefit from having dedicated School Street officers? What are the potential pitfalls to look out for?

Session 2: Smooth operations 

Smooth operations: Once your School Street is up and running, how do you drive up compliance? Is there a case for using volunteers? What is the most effective type of signage? Do you need fixed cameras at every site? Or is there a case for mobile and movable cameras? How do you cover the cost of enforcement if compliance improves? Is behaviour change dependent on continuous enforcement?

Session 3: Building an evidence base

Building an evidence base: How do you prove that School Streets really make a positive impact? What is the best approach when monitoring a scheme? How do you collect strong data on: air quality; road danger including perceived road danger; active travel; public health; community cohesion; urban greening. Once you’ve collected data, what is the best way to disseminate it?

Session 4: Round table discussion and Q&A

Round table discussion and Q&A: Your chance to ask the experts about operational and policy-related issues. This could cover issues around the need for national policy on exemptions and signage, challenging ‘culture war’ myths, working in partnership with neighbouring councils, and building partnerships with TfL and other organisations.

 

Send in your questions in advance or you can ask them on the day.
