School Bus Reservation Spaces – 18.19 AUT 2

15/10/2018

Dear Parent / Carer

Re: School Bus Reservation Spaces – 18.19 AUT 2

As we are a growing school at the start of the term we introduced a new reservation system for the bus as the following:

Mornings:

The bus will leave the current pick up point (Bread of Heaven Church) at 08:05 prompt – if your child is not on the bus by 08:05, you will need to make your own arrangements to ensure that your child is in school by 08:30 so they don’t miss out on valuable learning time.

Afternoons:

  • You are securing your child’s space on the bus for the whole term

  • If you will be using Lavender Blu services, you need to contact Lavender Blu with a minimum of 24 hours notice. Lavender Blu will then inform the school that your child will be attending Lavender Blu and collect them from their classroom before the bus leaves.

  • Although you are more than welcome to contact the school to confirm your child is not to be put on the bus – the responsibility is with Lavender Blu to confirm this in writing 24 hours in advance with the school. Unfortunately without written confirmation from Lavender Blu to One Degree Academy – we will put your child on the bus.

  • If you would not like your child to be on the bus for a particular day (excluding children who are attending After School Clubs) you will need to be at the school by 15:30 prompt to pick up your child from the school playground – otherwise your child will be put on the school bus.

These measures may sound rigid and we realise that there may be times when unexpected situations arise and we will need to be flexible but by working together we can ensure the safety and whereabouts of your child at all times.

Please can you sign and return this confirmation slip by Wednesday 17th October. Thanks once again for your continued support of the academy and your children.
