School Travel Plan 

The School Travel Plan is designed to promote considerate parking around the school at drop-off and pick-up times, encourage more children to walk to and from school and to make walking to school safer.

The School Travel Plan team consists of key members of staff, School Travel Plan Advisors from Hampshire County Council, our School Crossing Patroller, our local PCSO, governors and parents.

 

Parents, we ask that you please:

  • Report inconsiderate parking via stphordleprimary@gmail.com (see below)
  • Park elsewhere, other than on the zigzags
  • Find a safe, considerate and legal place to park your car
  • Park away from road junctions (as per the Highway Code) as it is dangerous and blocks visibility
  • Make use of the Dudley Avenue car park, or a friend’s house (with their permission) and walk to school
  • Let your children out of the car safety, on the pavement side if possible
  • Be mindful to always leave sufficient space for our neighbours to pull into/ out of their driveways safely

 

To report a parking incident

Please send an email to: stphordleprimary@gmail.com

And include the following details:

  • the incident date and time
  • location
  • details of situation along with a photograph of the vehicle in question, showing it parked inconsiderately with registration plate clearly visible

All the details get logged and registration numbers will be published in the weekly school newsletter. In the unlikely event that someone has been reported three times, the photographic evidence and details of the incident will be forwarded to our designated PCSO at Hampshire Police, for review. He will then make contact with the owner directly.

In the past year we have:

  1. Held a competition for the children to design a banner for the front of the school:

STP banner

2. Encouraged everyone to take the Parkwise Pledge

Parkwise promise

3.  Got everyone to complete a Travel Survey about how they come to school

4. Made walking to school easier by getting some more pavement installed on the corner of Everton Road and Hordle Lane

5. Raised awareness of the importance of NOT parking or dropping off on the zig-zag

6. Encouraged people to park away from driveways and yellow lines

7. Sold pieces of Olympitch to raise money to buy Hi-Vis Jackets for our youngest members of school

This year there are lots more initiatives planned including:

  1. Recruit Junior Road Safety Officers
  2. Get more yellow lines painted near the school to make the roads safer
  3. Create a Park and Stride map showing good places to park a little further away from the school to ease congestion and encourage healthy walking and scooting
  4. More travel surveys
  5. Non-uniform days to raise awareness of road safety
  6. Plus the Road safety training for Year 2s and Bikeability training for Year 5s.
  7. Enter a national award scheme for road safety – Modeshift STARS

We hope everyone will work together to make the streets of Hordle a safe and pleasant place to be!
