Getting to school safely

Student safety is our priority. We encourage the whole community to be safe travellers on their way to and from school

As a parent or carer, you are responsible for how your child gets to and from school. Where possible, we encourage walking.

Plan ahead by discussing the following with your children:

  • safe travel routes
  • how to share the road safely
  • alternative arrangements for when unexpected things happen.
For more information about safe travel to and from school, visit:

Our school has its own policies and permission notes about walking and riding safely to school.

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.
