School Street signs will remain open during school holidays and half term breaks. It is not a statutory requirement to close them.


Signs and possibly also volunteers managing barriers will warn drivers of the days and times when the School Street is enforced.

Next steps

Following positive consultation and engagement with residents and the school, the School Street scheme was trialled under an Experimental Traffic Order (ETO) from 28 March 2022.

The results of the data monitored during the trial and the consultation feedback was reported to the January 2023 Transport and Air Quality committee (Item 30). The committee approved the recommendation to make the School Street permanent under a Traffic Management Order and this is currently being processed for 8 May 2023.

We will continue to endeavour to make School Streets more visible in the borough whilst still using the regulation DfT signs as is necessary to make them enforceable.
