What Do You Think About Your Journey To School in Chorlton? Take Our Survey!

We have set up a survey all about the experience and perceptions of travel to and from school from parents and guardians perspective. We want to hear what you think about your current  journeys.

We are really hoping everyone who has an interest in the ‘school run’ can help us with a really important piece of research on travel to school, as part of ongoing climate action work by the Our Streets Chorlton project.


We’ve focussed on the primary schools in Chorlton to allow us to establish any trends in responses from the age groups involved and ensure we get a good reach across the whole of Chorlton primary school area.

Here is a link to the Parent and Guardian Travel To School in Chorlton Survey.

(Please take the time to answer the demographic questions in Commonplace as this helps us to capture who is actively taking part in our online engagement and where we need to do more work!) 

It will take about 5 to 10 minutes and is designed to create a snapshot about the trends and patterns and challenges of taking kids to and from school.

The schools we are interested in seeking parent responses from span across our two local ward areas, Chorlton and Chorlton park:


  • St. John’s Roman Catholic Primary School 
  • Oswald Road Primary School 
  • Brookburn Primary School 
  • Chorlton Church of England Primary School

Chorlton Park

  • Barlow Hall Primary School 
  • Chorlton Park Primary School 
  • St. Ambrose Roman Catholic Primary School 
Ongoing School Community Engagement

We’re also looking at working with a group of children at the local secondary schools in Chorlton to help design their own set of questions around school journeys.

We’re in discussions with three secondary schools to connect and refine how we can work together. This is one of the actions that has come out of the emerging School Champions Network.

Our third meeting will be on the 19th of May at 7pm and all are welcome to attend!

As well as the above, one of our three mini-projects with Barlow Hall Primary School is well underway and we hope the learnings will filter across all the Chorlton schools.
