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 when:

Also talk about and practise:

  • safe travel routes
  • plans 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.

Travel to and from school

Children should travel directly to and from school by the safest, most direct route. Children are not allowed to leave school grounds during the day at anytime without being signed out by a parent/caregiver. Students are to use the supervised crossing to cross the road.

Bus travel

Free bus passes and Tcards are available to:

  • All K-2 pupils no matter how far they live from the school.
  • Primary pupils who live more than 1.6 km radial distance from the school.

When an infant pupil enters Year 3, the free pass is no longer available unless they live more than the 1.6 km radial distance from the school. School bus information may be obtained from Busways Macarthur P/L., (Narellan Depot), Lot 37 Anzac Avenue, Narellan, Telephone: 02 4647 7785. 

Misbehaviour by pupils could result in free bus passes and Tcards being withdrawn. Bus loading is supervised by a teacher each afternoon. Application forms are available through the office.

Car travel and parking

The safety of all chidlren is paramount. Therefore, parents are asked to always park legally outside the school.

Parking illegally, near the crossing or in the bus zone, even for a minute, can put children's lives in danger, especially in wet weather.  For safety reasons parents are not to use the school car park to deliver or collect children between the hours of 8am to 4pm.


Pupils under 10 years are not encouraged to ride bikes as young children generally have not developed the necessary skills. 

Any child riding to school should have permission from parents, who should ensure that pupils know the road rules and have the required skills in riding. 

Children are not to ride in the school grounds and must park the bikes in the approved area, a chain is recommended. All bike riders must wear an approved safety helmet.
