Travel to School Survey Results, June 2016
The safer routes to school (SRTS) group updated the school travel survey in Terms 5 and 6 of the 2015/16 school year.
The purpose of the survey was to inform the school as to how families travel to school regularly, why they choose this/these mode(s) of transport and what they would like to see improved in terms of road safety. The survey was supplemented by a class-by-class show of hands, asking fewer questions, to ensure we captured as many families as possible. These are being followed by a staff travel survey.

We were really grateful that 86 families returned the parent survey, representing 130 children across all seven classes. We established a pattern for travel to school, based on distance from the school plus other factors such as parents travelling to and from work or on to after school clubs.
Crossing the canal bridge was the single biggest concern raised and the school is working with the Council to establish a community rota to fill the crossing patrol vacancy. Parents will be contacted to see if they can participate in this.
Other safety improvements will need permission and/or investment from the Council, Parish Council or funds from other grants. In Term 6, the SRTS group met with the B&NES Group Manager for Highways along with Ward/Parish Councillors to walk the areas concerned. This group has committed to supporting the school in developing a proposal to put forward to the next budget round. Our first step is to update and publish the school travel plan, which is now underway.
