A ‘School Street’ is a road outside of a school with a temporary restriction on motorised traffic at school drop-off and pick-up times. The restriction applies to school traffic and through traffic, where the result should be a safer, healthier and more pleasant environment for everyone. To this end the Road Safety team launched the School Streets scheme for two schools, St Jude’s and Bramble, in September 2021.

In combination with the seven-week School Street scheme, an app for the Pompey Monster Stomp to School Challenge was piloted. The Pompey Monster Stomp to School Challenge was initially a pilot scheme to encourage children to walk, scoot or cycle to school regularly. It also provided road safety information in a fun and engaging way. In order to meet the aims and objectives of this research, a predominantly quantitative survey was launched. The survey was open between 1st and 21st November 2021 for St Jude’s and 14th December 2021 to 17th January 2022 for Bramble. The online survey was promoted via the following marketing and communication channels:

  • School Streets special addition newsletter to parents / carers
  • Survey link and QR code for schools to promote
  • Face-to-face promotion on the school street with the provision of paper surveys
  • Targeted letter drop


The main aim of the consultation was to understand the views of parents and carers that drop off or pick up children from St Jude’s and Bramble about the School Streets scheme and the Pompey Monster Stomp to School app. The consultation will focus on the following specific research objectives:

  • To identify what modes of travel parents / carers currently use to drop off and pick up their child(ren) from school
  • To identify any barriers parents / carers have in using active travel
  • To understand if these modes have changed and if they have changed due to the Stomp to School app or the School Street scheme
  • To gain insight into parent / carer perception of the scheme and the app and the impacts they have had
  • To understand what parents / carers liked and disliked about the School Street scheme and the Pompey Monster Stomp to School app

Response rates

The survey attracted 18 responses from Bramble school, and 73 responses from St Jude’s school; a combined response rate of 91 respondents.
