Considerate Parking Campaigns

Many schools suffer from inconsiderate parking near the school entrance and in nearby streets. As a result children’s safety is being put at risk.  We have a range of resources available to primary schools to help encourage parents, if they do need to drive to school, to park considerately near the school.

We have developed a series of animated films available to share with parents or for use in assemblies that highlight the main issues children encounter from the child’s perspective to show drivers how inconsiderate driving behaviour affects children.

We can also loan child-sized road safety characters to schools. These can be put outside school as part of a considerate parking campaign within the school that we help you to run.

You can download our Safer Journey to School leaflet to distribute to your families from the downloads section of this page.

If you would like support to help tackle inconsiderate parking around your school, please contact: schooltravel@york.gov.uk
