Modeshift, in partnership with Hackney Council, have created the 'Developing and Implementing School Streets' training course. Whilst this course can not currently run in its normal format, we are taking elements of the course online given the role that School Streets can play in supporting the wider re-opening of schools as lockdown is eased. This webinar is targeted at local authorities, schools and any other organisations who want to learn more about how to set up and deliver a School Streets project in their area. 

As schools welcome more pupils back, young people and their families will need more space outside of the school gates to ensure that everyone can enjoy a safer and healthier journey to school. As such, the Department for Transport are encouraging local authorities to implement measures that reallocate road space to people walking and cycling, both to encourage active travel and enable social distancing. This includes the implementation of School Streets schemes across the country whereby motor traffic is restricted at pick-up and drop-off times. 

This webinar will take you through the key elements of a 'traditional' School Streets scheme and give an overview of how local authorities can quickly establish schemes in their area as a response to the current public health crisis. We will also share examples of best practice from local authorities across the country who have already managed to set up School Streets schemes in recent weeks as part of their response. Specifically the webinar will focus on the following areas:

- What is a School Street scheme

- The different approaches to delivering School Streets

- Setting up a School Street scheme in response to COVID-19

- 'School Space' and complimentary measures to School Streets

- Examples of best practice for COVID-19 School Streets schemes
