• Pupils who are walking to and from school will be expected to stay on the pavements.
  • If cycling, then cycle paths should be used if possible and if not then pupils will be expected to cycle sensibly on the roads. Cycle helmets must be worn at all times.
  • Pupils arriving by school bus will be dropped off in the school turning circle and at the end of the day pupils catching a school bus will be supervised to line up ready in the turning circle.
  • Pupils will be given a specific seat on the bus and will be expected to remain there on their journey.
  • Misbehaviour on the school buses endangers pupils, the driver and other passengers. Such behaviour brings the school into disrepute. IT WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.
  • Bus monitors, the driver and the bus company will inform the school of any misbehaviour.
  • If reported, pupils will be temporarily or permanently excluded from the school buses. Parents/carers will be informed and will be responsible for arranging alternative transport. 

 

What happens if the bus is missed?

If a pupil misses the bus we do not expect them to start walking to school, so  before starting at K.M.S it is important to agree with your child what they should do in this eventuality. Usually pupils should go back home and report to yourself what has happened or go to a neighbour who has agreed to give them a lift to school. We also suggest all pupils have the school phone number in their mobile phone in case of an emergency.

Buses leave school promptly at 3.45pm. If your child happens to miss their bus, you will be contacted to make arrangements for them to get home.

 

Scholar Bus Service

A large number of pupils travel to and from school by bus.  The school has a Bus Policy drawn up in conjunction with the Bus Companies designed to help to ensure safety and efficiency.  Pupils who do not behave appropriately may not be allowed to use the bus for a period of time.  Any problems should be reported to school and will be pursued if necessary with pupils or the Bus Companies.
