School parking enforcement - The school street scheme

A school street is a road outside a school with a temporary restriction on motorised traffic at school drop-off and pick-up times.

The restriction does not apply outside of term time or during bank holidays.

If school holidays are extended due to the Coronavirus pandemic the restriction will not be in operation for the extended holiday period. 

The restriction applies to school traffic and through traffic. The result is a safer, healthier and pleasant environment for everyone.

School street schemes offer a proactive solution for school communities to tackle air pollution, poor health and road danger reduction. 

A school street scheme will encourage a healthier lifestyle and active travel to school for families and lead to a better environment for everyone. 

The aim is to improve local air quality and make it easier and safer for children and their parents to walk and cycle to school. 

Reducing the use of private car journeys to and from school should lead to:

  • less road danger from traffic 
  • less anti-social behaviour from inconsiderate parking and dangerous manoeuvres 
  • more walking and cycling by children and parents
  • reduced congestion and pollution from vehicles waiting with their engines running

How we enforce the school street scheme

All of the schemes are enforced using CCTV cameras positioned at the entry and exit points of the zone. 

Entering a school street zone during the times of prohibition is an offence under the Traffic Management Act 2004 and may incur a Penalty Charge Notice.

The contravention is '53j Failing to comply with a restriction on vehicles entering a pedestrian zone'.

This is a moving traffic contravention and is £130 discounted to £65 if paid within 14 days.

The restriction is imposed by an experimental traffic management order made under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984 section 9 and is valid for a period of 18 months from the date of making.

This order can be made permanent before the end of the 18 months under The Local Authorities' Traffic Orders (Procedure) (England and Wales) Regulations 1996 section 23. 

Exemptions to the school scheme

Residents living within the zones are exempt from the prohibition and can apply for a virtual permit denoted by ‘S’ permit holders on the entry signs.

How to get an exemption permit

Other restricted and exempt vehicles

Phase 1 exempt vehicles

The following are exempt in the phase 1 school scheme zones.

Visitors

Exemptions for visitors will not be granted for vehicles to enter the zones during the restricted times.

Vehicles already parked within the zones will be able to leave during the restricted times without risk of a penalty.

Deliveries

Deliveries are not exempt.

We understand this is an inconvenience and may cause issues, however these schemes have been implemented across the country successfully.

The aim is only to have the restrictions in place for up to 90 minutes, at drop off and pick up times, depending on the requirements of schools and residents.

Taxis

Taxis are not exempt unless they are for a disabled or medical need for residents or children enrolled at the schools.

Taxis can be pre-registered for an exemption if the registration of the taxi is known.

If a Penalty Charge Notice is received by a taxi attending a property for a disabled person with medical needs, they will need to be supply proof of the medical need in writing for the Penalty Charge Notice to be cancelled.
