School Travel Plans in Eastleigh      

Perhaps understandably parents do not feel that it is safe to allow their children to make their own way to school, either on foot or by bike, when the perception is that children are no longer safe from stranger intrusion or that roads have been designed for the car and are not safe to use by cyclists or pedestrians.  As a result the "school run" by car has become an accepted part of modern day life.  It does, however, contribute significantly to peak hour traffic congestion, often resulting in an unsafe environment on roads near to schools, particularly by the school gates. It also deprives children of the opportunity of enjoying healthy exercise by walking or cycling to school.

 Schooltravel

 There is an alternative.  By working in partnership, Eastleigh Borough Council, Hampshire County Council and local schools are looking at ways of developing and implementing safe and sustainable alternatives to using the car on the school run so that children can walk, cycle or scoot to their local school. 

Successful School Travel Plans:

Schools, in partnership with us and Hampshire County Council, have developed School Travel Plans which have provided a framework by which parents, teachers and pupils have agreed a strategy to reduce car dependency for the school run.  Borough and County Council Officers have worked closely with Eastleigh's Schools to ensure that  all of the Borough's state schools have completed Travel Plans. Many of these plans are now out of date, and we have been continuing to work with individual schools to help them to update their Travel Plans using a national accreditiation system called Modeshift STARS.

Park and Stride

Park and Stride is a scheme set up by Eastleigh Borough Council, whereby Schools work with businesses and organisations in their local community who have agreed to parents using their car parks at peak school times to park in and then walk their children the remaining journey to school. This helps to alleviate the congestion outside the school gates which leads to improved safety for everyone who is walking, cycling or scooting to school. 

Park and Stride schemes that are already in place:

Berrywood school in conjunction with The Drummond Centre (map);

Botley C of E Primary School in conjunction with The Botley Centre (map);

Burseldon Infant and Junior Schools in conjunction with The Lowford Centre (map);
