Car Free Day resources

Car Free Day

Car Free Days are a great way to show how much of a positive impact your school can make on the local community, reducing congestion around the school gates by encouraging parents and carers to leave the car at home on the school run for a day or leaving the car a distance from the school and walking the rest of the way.

Working with schools and our Schools Go Smarter Officers, we have developed a range of free resources to help you deliver a Car Free Day at your school, including Guidelines and Case Studies, which can be found on the Schools Go Smarter Teaching Resources website at

This year we supported Car Free Days across the region, see our story about Star of the Sea Primary (North Tyneside)
