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 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.

For independent travellers

Use our resources to discuss safe travel to and from school with your high-school-aged child.
