The Local Education Authority will provide free transport for children living within the catchment area, where the road journey is more than 2 miles. This applies to all children from the term in which they are five years old. In all North Yorkshire schools, children who are not yet five and who are attending school early, may travel free on existing transport, if they live more than 2 miles from school, providing there is space available on the vehicle. Minibuses and buses, fitted with seat belts, are used to transport the children.
Any parent who feels that their child qualifies for free transport should obtain an application form from school, which should then be submitted to The Transport Officer at the Harrogate Area Office. In some cases, transport may be provided at a concessionary rate for children who live outside the normal catchment area, but this is conditional on a seat being available on an existing route.
If you bring your child to school by car, please do not park in the yellow zigzag zone outside the front of the school. This needs to be kept traffic-free for the safety of children and parents. It is always extremely busy at the beginning and end of the school day and we ask parents to be very aware of the traffic hazard and keep their children under close supervision.
Pupils may cycle to school (we would recommend this is only when the child is deemed a proficient cyclist and wears a helmet); a cycle rack is available for locking bikes (the child supplying their own lock).
