I would like to thank Mrs Loakes, Business Manager for liaising with various companies last week and re-establishing the service.

Behaviour on public transport

A large number of students travel on bus services to and from school each day. Although by and large behaviour is very good, please can you impress upon your children the need for excellent behaviour on all public transport and that they should report any problems or issues to the school.

Parking near the school

Please can I ask you to be mindful of and considerate to our neighbours when dropping off and picking up and also of the safety of our young people and other road users.

Visibility on dark evenings

As the clocks have now gone back and the evenings are drawing in, please can I ask you to check the routes agreed with your child for going home and also that, if cycling, they have appropriate lights and appropriately visible clothing.

Yours sincerely,

Marius Carney
