School Travel Plans (STP)

An STP helps schools to gather information on travel-related issues which may affect pupils and parents on their journey to and from the school. Whilst it is not a legal requirement for schools to have one in place, it can be of benefit by demonstrating its commitment to the promotion of safer, more ‘active’ and sustainable travel (such as walking, cycling, scootering, park & walk, etc) to and from the school/academy. With the main emphasis on reducing the number of children whose journeys are solely by private car this, in turn, could help:

Further benefits of a School Travel Plan (STP) include:

  1. It provides the necessary information should the school/academy ever need to apply for planning
    permission for changes to their site infrastructure.
  2. It enables the school/academy to bid for funding up to £5,000 from KCC towards on-site infrastructure (such as covered bicycle racks, scooter parking hubs, helmet storage, footpath improvements, pupil safety measures, etc.) which could further aid the take-up of active travel to and from the school by pupils/students and staff alike.

SALI* Travel Maps

SALI* Travel Maps and leaflets are an effective way to promote sustainable travel alternatives to staff, parents and residents, to influence their behaviour and encourage a reduction in car use. By indicating the sustainable travel routes and options that are available on the map/leaflet publication – whilst also highlighting their benefits – people are more likely to give these options a try.

Tailored information can show local walking & cycling routes, park & stride sites while isochrones can indicate, for example, five/ten-minute walking or parking exclusion zones, and icons can locate zebra- and patrol-crossings on the map.

*SALI = Semi Automated Leaflet Interface
