Following a steep rise in cases across the region, the whole of the North East has been named as an area that will receive additional support. You can read the latest statement from LA7 leaders. There are no additional restrictions on the area or residents but with cases of Covid higher than ever before everyone is asked to continue to act carefully and responsibly. Further information will be provided as it becomes available. See Covid-19 advice and information for advice on how to stay safe. Thank you for playing your part in helping to keep the North East open and protect others.

Behaviour on home to school/college transport

We expect good behaviour from children when using the school transport we provide.

The behaviour of the vast majority of children whilst travelling is good; however, the conduct of a small percentage of children gives cause for concern. This is unacceptable. When you apply for home to school transport for your child, you are required to sign a declaration stating that you agree to uphold good behaviour. Parents have a key role to play and you are responsible for the conduct of your children. 

If there is poor behaviour on home to school or home to college transport, the behaviour transport officers will work with the school/college to investigate and together will decide if the behaviour warrants a caution or whether we will ban the student for a specified period of time. The behaviour transport officers will send a leaflet out with the letter reminding you of your rights and responsibilities as parents highlighted in the  Icon for pdf Behaviour on Home to School Transport Policy (PDF, 120.4kb)  and in our Icon for pdf Home to primary, secondary and special school transport policy (PDF, 169.2kb) .
