Travel to School

St. Mary’s draws its pupils from a wide catchment area. Many pupils, therefore, travel to school each day by bus.

At all times, when travelling to and from school, pupils are expected to behave safely and responsibly. Pupils should board and alight from buses safely at designated stops and areas. Pupils should remain seated during travel and, where fitted, seat belts must be worn during travel. Any incident of anti-social behaviour on school transport may result in a pupil’s travel pass being revoked and parents/guardians becoming responsible for their son/daughter's future travel arrangements to school. Should any form of vandalism occur on school transport and the pupil(s) responsible is identified, parents/guardians will be liable for the cost of damage.
