Three Havering schools sign up to street safety scheme

Three schools in Havering have agreed to take part in a scheme to make it safer for children traveling to and from school. 

Branfil Primary School, Hylands Primary School and Squirrels Heath Infant and Junior have all signed up to the council’s School Streets programme. 

It means people will only be able to walk or cycle in the areas surrounding those educational facilities during set times of the day. 

Transport for London has funded the scheme in an effort to reduce traffic and improve safety and air quality. 

It will be trialed for between six and nine months to determine if it is effective and then may become permanent. 

However, 13 schools chose not to take part following a consultation which was carried out in July. 

“I want to thank everyone who gave their views on this scheme,” said Councillor Osman Dervish. “The response was very valuable and has given us the chance to see what is best for the different areas. 

“For those areas that previously had PSPO arrangements in place and didn’t support the scheme, we will be working with both the schools and residents to look at other options.

“We want to help find ways of reducing pollution and improve safety issues around our school gates as we continue to recover from the Covid-19 pandemic.

“We’re encouraging children and parents to walk or cycle to school where possible, to help improve safety and congestion outside schools.”
