Travel to and from school
Some children living near school are brought and collected by family members, and there is a room to wait with your child until 9.10am if you arrive early.
The transport department organises daily transport to and from school for the majority of pupils of Lancasterian School. Buses and taxis have a driver and escort thus providing a valuable link between home and school. This is a separate organisation to school and is run by the Local Authority. Buses and taxis have a driver and escort thus providing a valuable link between home and school. It is the parents’/ carers responsibility to make arrangements with transport and let the school office know.
It is the parents’ responsibility to deliver the child to the vehicle either at a pick up point or from home. The escort cannot leave the vehicle at any time. Similarly, at the end of the day, parents need to collect their child from the bus. They are given a maximum waiting time and are obliged to move off after this time to the next pick up. Drivers and escorts do their best to keep to the schedule, but are occasionally delayed by traffic conditions, breakdowns or weather. All families should have the mobile phone number of the escort.
