Renewing and Applying for School Bus Passes
Connexions Buses September 2020
- Sanitisers and screens are fitted on all buses
- The PH2 and PH7 services will ensure students who would have used public transport can get to school for at least the next term (to be reviewed based on Government Guidance at the time)
- Metro travel passes are currently valid in the same way they always have been. Students will still be able to catch public buses, if they need to, in the short term.
Travelling by car
In the interests of safety, it is essential that parents and carers do not drive into the school grounds to drop off or pick up their children. Quite simply, with over a thousand pedestrians and up to ten buses arriving and leaving the site simultaneously, this would pose a serious danger. Students must arrange with their parents to pick them up at a safe place outside the school grounds. They must, however, take care not to park near the pedestrian crossing on Farnley Lane, for this is extremely dangerous. Likewise, Prince Henry's Court (adjacent to the Newall Carr Road entrance) must not be used for the purposes of dropping off / picking up students.
Cyclists must have their parent/carers' permission, keep their cycles in roadworthy condition, lock them securely and never leave on them parts that can be easily removed. Cycles should be insured under parents' home policy. In the interests of safety, cyclists must dismount at the gate and not ride in the grounds. All students cycling to school must wear protective helmets.
Pedestrians must not use the driveway but instead should use the steps and footpath from Farnley Lane. If using the Newall Carr Road entrance, students must use the footpath adjacent to the playing fields and not cross the car park. The pedestrian crossings on Farnley Lane and Newall Carr Road should be used to cross the road.
