School streets

School streets are places where we put children and families first. and keep them safe and healthy by encouraging walking, scooting and cycling to school. We want every school in Birmingham to be a school street. There are a range of campaign resources available to support schools with this:

  • Keep Clear School Streets – resources to address school gate parking, supported by parking enforcement visits.
  • Slow Down School Streets – a toolkit originally developed for the 20mph pilot that addresses speeding concerns, along with possible traffic calming measures
  • Switch Off School Streets – a new toolkit with resources to help schools to run an ‘anti-idling’ campaign.
  • Car Free School Streets – roads outside schools closed to traffic at the start and end of the school day, helping to reduce congestion and improve air quality at the school gates, making it easier and safer to walk or cycle to school.
