Essex County Council - Transport Survey
Please see the message below from Sustrans regarding travel to and from school. Parental responses are invited and greatly appreciated.
Firstly I hope you and everyone at your school are all well.
Sustrans have developed a survey for parents and guardians, looking at how children and their families travel to and from school (pre Covid-19). The survey is only 10 questions long and should take approximately 4 minutes to fill out. This survey is really important for us determining how school runs can be made safer, easier and more sustainable.
I would greatly appreciate it if you could distribute this survey to parents and guardians through your email lists, text, newsletters, and social media channels. A link to the survey can be found below, and the survey closes on Sunday 12 July:
Everyone that completes the survey will be entered into a prize draw to win a bike worth up to £400 including accessories (helmet and lock)!
At the end of the survey we will be able to supply data to each school (if there are sufficient responses) which can help assist with travel plans and discussions moving forward.
This survey is also being completed in other areas around the UK and getting thousands of responses, so it would be great to see similar results in Essex! The survey gives parents a voice and can help in creating a dialogue to better improve school runs.
Thanks for your support on this and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
