Travelling Safely on Buses

 

What you can do as Parents...

  • Make sure your child arrives at the pick up point in plenty of time so that they do not have to rush. Be punctual. 

  • Make sure your child knows what YOU want them to do if the bus is late or does not arrive. 

  • Teach your child about road safety, how to act sensibly on and around buses and how to cross the road to and from the bus stop. 

  • Instruct your child to do as the driver says and not to misbehave. You may be held responsible for any vandalism to the bus/taxi caused by your child. 

  • A designated responsible adult should be at the drop off point to receive your child. 

  • Wait for your child on the side of the road where the bus sets them down on the return journey. 

  • Make sure your child can be seen by other road users. By wearing or carrying something bright or fluorescent your child is more easily seen in poor daylight conditions.

Children can help keep themselves safe by...
 

  • remaining seated with the seat belt fastened (where fitted) 

  • behaving sensibly and safely at all times 

  • treating the driver and fellow passengers with respect by following reasonable instructions, avoiding confrontation or the use of abuse or inappropriate language or gestures 

  • not smoking (the Authority operates a NO SMOKING POLICY on all funded transport) 

  • not interfering with equipment in the vehicle e.g. fire extinguishers, emergency doors etc. 

  • storing bags and belongings safely 

  • not standing in the stairwell of the bus.

Bullying on Buses
 

What to do if you feel that you are being bullied on a Summer camp bus...

 

  • Don’t ignore it – it won’t go away and may get worse 

  • Tell someone you trust - such as a volunteer, parent or friend 

  • Remember - it’s not your fault - no one deserves to be bullied 

  • Keep a record of any nasty texts or emails that you have been sent 

  • Try to stay away from the bullies 

  • Ask your friend to look out for you 

  • Don’t retaliate - you could get yourself  into trouble or get hurt 

  • Contact Summer Camp "Designated Officers"  and they will  help with your concerns.
