A certain standard of
behaviour is expected of children whilst travelling on school transport.
If children are badly behaved, cause disruption or jeopardise the safety of
themselves or others the Local Authority has a right to ban them from transport
for a set period of time and it then becomes the parent’s responsibility to
ensure the child’s attendance at school.
Please be aware that it is
sometimes necessary for a child’s transport arrangements to be changed, so
there is no guarantee that your child will always have the same taxi/bus
company, Escort or school route. If changes need to be made you will be
notified as soon as possible.
