You may be able to apply for a school safety zone permit to allow you to use the street during these times.


Vehicles must not enter an affected street during the restricted periods, unless they are exempt. Vehicles can leave these areas at any time.

During the restricted periods, we will carry out enforcement using automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras.

The following vehicles are exempt:

  • vehicles with a valid school safety zone permit
  • emergency service vehicles
  • Royal Mail delivery vehicles
  • Dial-a-Ride vehicles
  • community ambulances
  • Mascot Telecare vehicles

Penalty charge notices and appeals

If your vehicle enters a school street at a restricted time and you don’t have a school safety zone permit, you may receive a penalty charge notice (PCN).

We recommend that you apply for a school safety zone permit if you are eligible, to avoid receiving unnecessary PCNs.

If you appeal the PCN, we will normally cancel it if you provide evidence that you are:

  • a resident who has to enter the school safety zone to access their home
  • a parent or carer of a child at the school, and either you or the child are a Blue Badge holder (we may ask for confirmation from the school)
  • a paid carer attending a pre-arranged appointment with a vulnerable resident in the street
  • a licensed taxi or minicab driver picking up or dropping off a passenger on the street
  • providing transport to a medical appointment, or
  • providing emergency support to a vulnerable resident
