Bus Service

Our School Bus policy aims to ensure our students have a safe journey to and from the school.

We provide an optional bus service to make it easier for families to get children to and from school each day. We will do all we reasonably can to provide a comprehensive service at the normal start and end of the school day, although it may not be possible to serve some locations because of distance, direction and traffic conditions. We choose each route and pick-up point to balance the needs of students, minimising travelling time and the number of pick-ups as far as possible.

We work hard to maintain a consistent service through the year, but varying family circumstances, traffic flow changes and city events may result in changes during the course of a year. We telephone parents when there is a minor change to a bus route or timings and we send letters home if we have to make a significant change.

We see the school buses as an extension of the school and we expect the same high standards of students using them as we expect at school. Younger and older students ride the bus together and we expect the older students to make sure that their conversations are appropriate on the bus, and we expect the younger students to ensure that the older students are able to work relatively undisturbed, if they wish.
