Our school has been chosen along with Godwin to be among the first in the borough to implement a Healthy School Streets scheme. This is a great opportunity for the school with clear benefits for pupils, staff, and local residents.
How does it work?
Sections of Sebert Road, Cranmer Road, and Godwin Road are closed to motor vehicles on school days at the following times:
- From 08:30 until 09:30
- From 15:00 until 16:00
You can view a map of the scheme by clicking on this link.
The roads are not physically closed but are enforced by ANPR cameras which can identify number plates and issue fixed penalty notices (FPN) accordingly. There are some exemptions:
- Residents living on the sections that are closed are able to apply for an exemption in order to leave or return to their properties
- Blue badge holders are able to use the sections as normal ONLY IF they have business at the school
- Note that having a regular FGN parking permit is not sufficient during the times that the closures are in operation. You will be issued with a PN if you drive through the zone, whether you stop or not.
