Education and skills - hands-up survey responses by school type (2020) Edit

The Hands Up Scotland Survey looks at how pupils across the country travel to school and nursery.

The project is funded by Transport Scotland and is a joint survey between Sustrans and all 32 Scottish local authorities.

Each September, schools across Scotland complete the survey by asking their pupils ‘How do you normally travel to school?’. Council staff distribute the survey to schools and return pupil responses to the Sustrans’ Research and Monitoring Unit for overall collation, analysis and reporting.

Published on 26th May, 2022, the 2021 Annual Report provides a valuable snapshot of school travel in Scotland.

This dataset is sourced from tables 1.1, “National response rates: number of pupils responding to survey”, and 1.2, “Local authority response rates: number of pupils responding to survey”, from the Hands Up Scotland Survey 2021 Annual Report, and offers a breakdown of responses by school type at a national level alongside those for schools within the Stirling Council area from 2008 onwards.
