Maintain social distancing around schools
This week Lewisham council launched the first phase of their school streets programme at Adamsrill, Deptford Green and Prendergast Ladywell Schools.
School Streets have been designed to ensure that social distancing can be maintained at the school gate, and parents or carers are able to wait for their children in a calm and safe environment that has clean air, without having to worry about traffic or idling vehicles. It also aims to make it easier and safer to walk and cycle to school, and hopes to encourage children and adults to switch to more sustainable forms of travel. The council will be bringing School Streets to several other Schools in the coming weeks.
