Renfrewshire Council

Schools

We encourage our young people to get to school each day through active travel - be it by walking, wheeling or cycling - and we want to make sure schools are as safe as possible for them at drop-off and pick-up time.

So we are introducing temporary measures in Renfrewshire to create more space for physical distancing and make it safer for people walking, cycling and wheeling during the Coronavirus pandemic.

We are currently speaking to a number of schools to identify how we can make it easier for pupils to travel to and from school in new ways, while ensuring safety is the number one priority.

Newmains Primary in Renfrew was the first school to have amendments made to the layout of the street outside the school gate - and we will be adding more to that list.

We will work with the head teacher, parent councils and pupils themselves to ensure we can bring in measures that benefit their school community so please keep checking here for updates.
