School transport 

Tuesday 2 February 2016 - There are currently no issues with school transport.

Parents/guardians will receive a group call, in the first instance, if any routes are cancelled or running a reduced service.

Parents should remember:

  • in normal circumstances, children should not wait more than 15 minutes for the bus
  • in severely cold weather please use your own judgement
  • it is up to parents to decide whether their child should wait for the school bus
  • if you decide to take your child to school yourself - you will be expected to collect your child at the end of the school day.
