Getting to and from school safely

As a parent or carer, it’s your responsibility to get your child to and from school safely. Student safety is our priority.

Keep our school community safe by:

  • driving and parking safely, even if it means parking further away and walking the rest of the way to school
  • being a good role model
  • never calling your child from across the road
  • using the safest place to cross the road.

For parents and carers of younger children

Discuss with your child how to be safe using the following modes of transport:

You could also have a conversation about:

  • safe travel routes
  • alternative arrangements for when unexpected things happen
  • what to do in wet weather.

Subsidised school travel

Transport for NSW provides subsidies to assist school students.

  • The School Student Transport Scheme provides eligible students with free or subsidised travel on public transport between home and school.
  • The School Drive Subsidy may help towards the costs of driving children to school if you live in an area where there is no public transport.

Safety on wheels

The safety on wheels brochure (PDF 222KB) produced by the NSW Roads and Traffic Authority provides legal and safety advice related to the riding of bicycles and other wheeled devices.  Our school encourages the heeding of this advice.
