Transport is automatically arranged for new pupils. If there are difficulties with transport, please inform the school and we will do our best to sort it out. Ultimately, the responsibility lies with the local authority, as we do not have the authority to change transport arrangements.

There is an escort on some vehicles but we must stress that it is not part of the escort’s duty to knock on the door for pupils. Equally, when the pupils arrive home it is for the Parent/Carer to decide if the pupil will be met at the taxi point. The escort is not expected to take pupils to the front door.

If a Parent/Carer wishes a pupil to be dropped at a different address after school, we must be informed in advance. If a pupil is going to another pupil’s home them we must have consent from both sets of Parents/Carers in advance (this could only happen if there was space in the taxi and an agreement in advance with the taxi company had been sought).

If your child is not coming to school for whatever reason, then Parents/Carers are asked to cancel the transport.
