School Streets are where the street or streets near to the entrance or entrances of a school are only open to people walking, scooting and cycling at the start and end of the school day.
This creates a much safer and pleasant place for people to access the school, whether you are a pupil, parent or a teacher. It also improves the street for the residents.
School Neighbourhoods are where a wider area is considered and changes to the street are made to create a safer and more inviting walking, cycling and scooting environment over a wider area – this may or may not include a closure of the streets or streets near to the entrance.
This could include traffic calming over a wider area, filtering of streets, widening of pavements, more crossing points. Typically, School Neighbourhoods take much longer to do as they include more work to make the changes.
