Walking Bus Home/School Agreement

Chester Park Junior has set up a Walking Bus with the aim of helping parents with children on both sites/children from the infant school who attend breakfast club to get their children to the relevant school site at the designated times. We also aim to reduce traffic congestion and pollution around the school sites.

These guidelines outline your responsibilities with the Walking Bus.

School will

  • Ensure all staff will wear florescent tabards.
  • Ensure that the designated (risk assessed) route is followed.
  • Make sure children are aware of any hazards (cars coming out if driveways etc).
  • Ensure children are aware of the expectations regarding behaviour.
  • Ensure the correct ratio of adults to children is followed according to policy.

Parents/Carers will

  • Take their child to the pick -up points for the designated time. If a child misses the bus it is the parents'/ carers' responsibility to take their child to school.
  • Understand that once the bus has left the pick-up point that it is not possible for a child to join. It will remain the parents'/ carers responsibility to take their child to school.
  • Ensure their child has the correct outdoor clothing (rain coat in bad weather).
  • Support the school’s policy and guidelines for behaviour.

Children  will

  • Walk ( no scooters or bikes)
  • Behave sensibly and safely.
  • Wear florescent tabards (supplied by school).
  • Listen carefully and follow instructions.
  • Stay with the group.
  • Carry their own belongings (book bag, packed lunch etc).
