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 when:

Also talk about and practise:

  • safe travel routes
  • plans for when unexpected things happen
  • what to do in wet weather.

Subsidised school travel

Transport for NSW provides subsidies to assist school students.

  • The School Student Transport Scheme provides eligible students with free or subsidised travel on public transport between home and school.
  • The School Drive Subsidy may help towards the costs of driving children to school if you live in an area where there is no public transport.

Assisted School Travel Program

Students with a disability who are unable to travel to and from school under the Transport for NSW's School Student Transport Scheme may be eligible for transport assistance under the department's Assisted School Travel Program (ASTP). The ASTP plays a significant role in meeting the needs of eligible students with a disability by providing free specialised transport to and from the school where parents and carers are unable to provide or arrange transportation for the student either wholly or in part. Visit the ASTP site for more information.

Students who meet the NSW Department of Education and Assisted School Transport criteria can apply for transport services to and from school. It is necessary for parents/carers to present home details and a written explanation as to reasoning why the family is unable to transport the student daily both to and from school.

Occasionally parents may need to vary normal, agreed transport arrangements. In those circumstances, it is necessary to contact the principal and supply written confirmation of alternate methods with details of the location, carer, and time-frame. The request for Variation of Routine will be submitted to the Assisted School Transport Unit, who in turn will contact the applicant/principal with the outcome as soon as possible. Any changes to address or variations need ample notification for applications to be processed.
