Why your views matter

In 2020 an overwhelming 13,000 parents filled out our primary school's travel survey, making it one of the largest survey responses for the county council in recent times.   

A key response from parents and carers tackling the school run was that they wanted to see better infrastructure and road safety training to help them walk and cycle to school safely.   

As a direct result the county council are considering additional investment in walking and cycling measures outside schools to make walking and cycling and scooting to school easier and safer. 

 In response to the survey The Safer Travel Team are launching a new Walking Training programme in May / June 2022 for Year 3 pupils across Surrey's primary schools. This will be delivered by a team of trained Walking Instructors and the course will be taught through a series of in-class and on-road practical training modules.  

By offering this new programme at Year 3, it blends with other initiatives such as Cycle Training (Bikeability level 1 and 2). The training course will provide pupils with the necessary foundational road safety skills to better enable them to safely walk to and from school with their parents and carers, preparing them for safe, independent travel in the future. If you would like to find out more, please email 

We are undertaking this survey again, so we can gather key information which will provide us with the ability to understand what our priorities should be when we consider how we can improve the roads and footways around schools, and how we encourage more walking, cycling, scooting, and parking and striding. 

Your feedback will be vital in helping improve pupils' journeys to school.
