Call on your local authority to close the road outside a local school at the start and end of the school day.
Roads around schools at drop off and pick up times are often dominated by cars - badly parked and contributing to dangerous levels of congestion and pollution.
Naturally this can make the walk to school feel unsafe.
School street closure schemes - where cars are prevented from going up to the school gates at drop off and pick up times – have been successfully trialled in towns and cities in the UK.
Urge your local council to consider one where you live.
Let's make streets outside schools less congested, less polluted and
safer for children
Pupils at Millfield Community School were already taking part in WOW, our year-round walk to school challenge. So signing up for the local council's school street closure scheme was the obvious next step!
