A Safer Journey to School

This guide for schools on travel plans takes account of our integrated transport policy to reduce car dependency, particularly for short journeys. It also builds upon the many good practices already in place in schools up and down the country. Safer Routes to School is the centerpiece of the Government's transport proposals for schools and the key to turning the practical steps in this guidance into action on the ground.
