A STP is produced to plan activities to address issues relating to the school journey, including congestion and parking, to improve road safety and increase physical activity. The school should share it with the whole school and local community.

The introduction is an important part of the travel plan. It sets the scene and provides basic information about your school, including:

  • pupil and staff information
  • opening and closing times
  • travel related facilities
  • transportation links

The school should include as much information as possible in this section, so that the STP can be read and understood by anyone who wishes to view it, not just those involved in the development of your travel plan.
