Free School Bus
It was agreed by education that any pupil who forgets their pass in the mornings must be taken into school. They will be reminded by the driver that they must report to the school reception and be issued with a temporary pass/letter. Temporary bus passes/letters will only be available from reception at breaktime. If a pass has just been left at home, then an afternoon only letter or pass is required. If the pupil has lost their pass, the temporary pass/letter should be valid for 1 week only. If pupils fail to get a temporary pass from reception, the driver can and should refuse the pupil onto the bus that afternoon. That same pupil will be turned away the following morning if they attempt to board the bus.
SCHOOL GATES
All pedestrian gates will be locked at 8.45 am and re-opened at 3.20. Late pupils must enter school through A Block Reception.
