Improving road safety and encouraging active travel to Chatham Primary School

The program helps primary school students, their families and staff travel to school in a safe and active way.

It will look at creating a safer school environment by improving driver behavior and reducing the potential for pedestrian and cyclist crashes in our neighbourhood. It will also encourage more active travel such as walking and cycling.

Our school community will work with Council to increase safety around the school and encourage students and families to walk or ride to school where possible.  This will reduce traffic congestion and make our school a safer, healthier and more pleasant environment for everyone.



As part of the program our school will be taking part in a school-wide travel survey. All classes, students and parents are invited to participate.

This travel survey is important to help us to better understand how we are currently travelling to and from school. We can then plan to improve options for student travel.

Please take a few minutes to complete it. This will be a great opportunity for parents to have an input into our safe and active travel plan.

All students will complete their survey part in class during the week. Could parents please return surveys to class by Thursday 3rd November for students to complete their section.
