East Preston Infant School

Travel Plan

We are proud to say that the school holds Travel Mark 2 for its work in promoting safer travel to and from school. In case you are not sure, a School Travel Plan is a document which sets out how we will promote safer, active and sustainable travel to school. Our main aim is to reduce the number of children being driven to and from the site.

We think it is important to have a School Travel Plan because it is of benefit not just for our school community but also for the area around the school generally.

Other reasons we have the School Travel Plan include:

For the Pupils

  • Improving health and fitness by walking, scooting and cycling
  • Improving travel awareness and road user skills
  • Improving awareness of their surroundings

For the School​

  • Improving safety around the school
  • Reducing congestion around the school
  • Establishing safer walking and cycling routes around the school
  • Contributing to other school policies such as Eco- Schools/Healthy Schools (we have awards for both of these areas)
  • Linking to the National Curriculum

For Parents

  • Reducing stress and time spent driving to school, especially when it is congested
  • Increasing quality parent/child contact time
  • Building better links with the school

For the Local Community

  • Improving the local environment by reducing air and noise pollution
  • Reducing congestion problems
  • Improving walking routes
  • Improving road safety
