We will invite you to take part in these research activities:
Photographs of the school journey
We would like to ask your child to take photographs of their journeys to and from school, with your help if needed. We will provide digital cameras. Afterwards we will arrange a time to talk about these photographs with you and your child to give us more insight into the school journey. This conversation can be on a video or telephone call, or in-person if you prefer.
Guided tour of your child’s walk to school (optional)
If your child walks or cycles to school, the researcher, would also like to walk with your child (and with you if you normally travel with your child) on a journey to or from school. This will be on a day that is convenient for you. This will be at the same time as you normally travel. We will ask questions whilst you walk and audio-record the conversation. All researchers have an enhanced DBS check.
Telephone interview with parents
We would like to talk to parents about how your child travels to school, including any difficulties you experience getting your child to school; any activities such as cycle training or improvements to the environment you are know of; and whether the pandemic has affected how you make decisions about school travel.
You are eligible to take part in the study if you have a child aged between 8-12 years attending any school in Northstowe, Cambridgeshire. A £30 voucher will be given to each household who takes part in two or three of the research activities.
More details of the study, our ethical approval and data sharing can be found on the School Travel Environments Project participant information sheet.
If you are interested in taking part, please fill out the online expression of interest form or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you if you are eligible to discuss the study further.
