Scotland was the first in the UK to introduce school street schemes in 2015. Camden was the first in London in 2017. It was first introduced in Italy, in 1989.
Numbers keep growing as parents and residents have had enough.
Here’s a map of all the existing School Streets, permanent as well as going through live-trial. If we’ve missed your School Street, let us know. Thank you!
If you were to start campaigning for a School Street at your school, insights from parents who went through the process are invaluable so do not hesitate to reach out and speak to them. They will be happy for you to visit and see for yourselves how the scheme works in practice. You will also find out more information by looking up the local authority website where the school is located.
