GUIDANCE FOR PARENTS AND CARERS REGARDING TRANSPORT TO AND

FROM SCHOOL BY TAXI


The notes of Guidance for Students and Parents/Guardians entitled to school and social care transport clearly states:


Parents/guardians are responsible for the students’ safety and behaviour:

before they get on the vehicle

during the journey

and after they leave the vehicle


They will be informed if students harass or bully others, fight, are offensive, cause vandalism or throw objects.  If students cause damage to the vehicle or other property the cost of repairing the damage may be charged to parents/guardians.  Remember students will lose their right to use the school transport if they misbehave and parents/guardians may have to pay for alternative transport.


We want students to enjoy their journey to school.  However, parents/guardians should encourage their child to refrain from distracting the driver as this could put passengers and other road users at risk.


Should there be any concerns about the transport or equipment which is provided please contact Essex County Council.


We will take responsibility for pupils once the taxi arrives on school property and before the taxi leaves the school grounds.





















Any pupil arriving in school with a safeguarding concern we will contact you and put in a report to the Safeguarding Team at Essex County Council.


It is advised that parents/carers also make contact with the team as soon as possible.
