Oak Lodge School, Barnet: School Travel Plan

School Travel Plan

Oak Lodge School supports Transport for London's STARS scheme to promote safe and sustainable travel within the London area. We currently hold the Gold Award. Please click here for our School Active Travel Policy. We encourage all staff to use active or sustainable modes of travel for their daily commute, by walking, cycling or using public transport. Currently, only 40% of staff arrive at school by private car or motorcycle; everyone else is car sharing, cycling or using public transport!

Independent Travel Training
Road safety and the development of independent travel skills are a regular feauture of every student's learning at Oak Lodge. This will involve progressively developmental activities that are adapted to suit each student's emerging skills, so that in time many will have the confidence and ability to plan and make journeys of their own. Whilst most students arrive at school by SEN Transport minibuses or taxis, educational visits to local and regional places of interest are a daily feature of our curriculum and are always undertaken using public transport wherever possible to maximise opportunities to practice travel skills.

"Park and Stride"
There are limited parking spaces on the school site. As the road down to school can become congested, we encourage all parents and visitors travelling by car to consider parking in other local roads, where space is legally available.
