School Travel Plan

What is the School Travel Plan?

The main aim of the School Travel Plan (STP) is to reduce single occupancy car use on the school journey, by promoting and encouraging safe and sustainable travel.  Increasing sustainable travel helps to reduce congestion and pollution, as well as improving the health and fitness of children.


At Dorney School, we would like to reduce the number of children travelling to and from school by car as we know traffic and parking around the school is a huge concern.


We actively encourage our pupils and staff to walk, scoot or cycle to school as they:

  • keep us fit and healthy
  • help our pupils develop road safety skills which will keep them safe as they travel further afield and more independently
  • help keep our local air clean, and our streets free from congestion
  • are life skills that everyone should be able to benefit from


Where a car must be used we ask parents to drive only part of the way, and drop their child(ren) off away from the school so that some of the journey can be walked or scooted.  Parking is very restricted around the immediate school site.  We ask that parents do not use the staff car park and that visitors refrain from doing so where possible.  We also plead with anyone coming to our school to refrain from driving down or parking in Harcourt Close, the road leading up to the school.  There is ample parking in the village hall car park at the rear of the school.  We ask that you are courteous to oncoming cars whilst using this route.  Please be considerate to our local residents when parking nearby to the school.


SUSTRANS Big Walk & Wheel 11th - 22nd March 2024


Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel inspires pupils to make active journeys to school, improve air quality in their neighbourhood and discover how these changes benefit their world.

Sustrans Big Walk and Wheel is open to all primary and secondary schools in the UK, including SEN/ASN/ALN schools. It is free to take part and there are daily prizes to be won.

On each day of the challenge, schools compete to see who can get the highest percentage of their pupils walking, using a wheelchair, scooting or cycling to school. Our school’s best five days will determine our final position.

How many active journeys will our pupils make?
