Summary

  • Overall, the primary travel method for children travelling ‘to school’ was ‘walking’ (65%), with ‘car’ being second (40%)
  • St John’s has the lowest proportion of children who ‘walk’ (41%) and the highest proportion who travelled by ‘car’ (59%), but it has a wide catchment area making walking difficult for those who live further away
  • (Note: Less than 5% of children use any other mode of transport to school so these have been hidden on the chart)
  • Children travel ‘from school’ in a similar way as they do ‘to school’, with ‘walk’ (69%) and ‘car’ (41%) being the first and second choice respectively for the total sample
