Arrangements for dealing with difficult behaviour

Drivers and escorts will normally notify the headteacher or nominated person at the school of any problems with a child's behaviour as soon as the problems occur. The headteacher will ensure that the Transport Team at the Education Office is kept informed.

Parents will be informed of any problems and will be asked to assist in preventing their recurrence.

If a child is behaving in such a way as to endanger him/herself or other pupils on the vehicle, then it may be necessary to withdraw transport either temporarily or permanently.

All journeys between home and school will be completed. Even if a child's behaviour is totally unacceptable, she/he will not be asked to get off the school transport anywhere other than home or school.
