The transport department organises daily transport to and from school. This is a separate organisation to school and is the parents responsibility to apply for transport before your child starts school. Some children living near school are brought and collected by family members, and there is a room to wait with your child until 9.00 am if you arrive early. Buses and taxis have a driver and escort thus providing a valuable link between home and school.
It is the parents’ responsibility to deliver the child to the vehicle either at a pick up point or from home. The escort cannot leave the vehicle at any time. Similarly, at the end of the day, parents need to collect their child from the bus. They are given a maximum waiting time and are obliged to move off after this time to the next pick up. Drivers and escorts do their best to keep to the schedule, but are occasionally delayed by traffic conditions, breakdowns or weather. All families should have the mobile phone number of the escort.
If you wish your son or daughter to be dropped off at a different address after school, please arrange this with transport and let the school office know.

Arrival and departure from the school site is part of our safeguarding procedure and senior members of staff are on duty each morning and afternoon to ensure safety at all times as attendance registers are completed.
