Walk to School Week
Hillbrook Primary School will be joining over a million primary school pupils to mark Walk to School Week. Walk to School Week is a yearly event held in May to raise awareness of walking and other active ways to travel to and from school. We understand that some of our families live a considerable distance from school but that doesn’t mean they can’t join in the fun. They could consider ‘Park and Stride’. This means they drive most of the way but park a 10 minute walk from school and finish the journey on foot. During the week we aim to encourage active travel, increase awareness of the local environment and eases congestion at our schools gates.
Cycling and Scooter Parking
Hillbrook Primary School has recently installed scooter and cycle parking to encourage our pupils and colleagues to scoot or cycle to school, rather than drive. This helps reduce congestion and improves road safety and air quality around the school gates.
Park and Stride Campaign
Park and Stride encourages families to park their car a distance from school and walk the rest of the way. It allows those who live further from the school to introduce an element of active travel into their journey. As well as promoting physical activity, Park and Stride reduces congestion and pollution around our school.
Hillbrook Primary School is working with parents/carers to tackle the issue of air pollution. When a car engine is left running for over a minute after stopping or parking, this is known as idling. Idling is common when parents/carers are picking up and dropping off their children and it can increase air pollution around the school gate. Together we would like to help improve air quality around our school. We are encouraging parents/carers who drive, to turn off their engines when they are waiting to drop off or collect their children.
ZigZag Line Enforcement
The zigzag lines are painted on roads outside school entrances to prevent cars from stopping or parking. The enforcement of zigzag lines can help improve our pupils’ safety as they come and go, and reduces congestion. As a result, our school can benefit from less pollution and better air quality in the local area.
20mph Speed Limit
Following a borough-wide consultation earlier this year, a 20mph limit has now been introduced in almost all residential roads in Wandsworth.

The Wandle Trail
The Wandle trail is a fantastic, mainly traffic-free route that follows the River Wandle from its mouth with the River Thames in Wandsworth, through three boroughs to Croydon, where local transport links offer a perfect finishing point for those with tired legs! The 12 mile route offers a great day out for people of all ages, for those on foot and on bike.
