Road safety and buses
To help get your child safely to and from school, all parents and caregivers are encouraged to use the below checklist.
- Read the code of conduct on rules for catching a school bus.
- Ensure your child is capable of travelling independently.
- Practice walking your child to and from their bus stop before getting on.
- Ensure your child stays back from the road and waits until the bus stops before getting on.
- Ensure your child waits until the bus leaves before crossing the road.
- Discuss what to do if your child misses their stop - stay on the bus and tell the driver, don't get off at the next stop.
- Discuss backup travel plans in case weather conditions stop bus timetables or routes.
