Dear Parents/carers

Following incidents of poor behaviour on the buses we wish to share with you a set of guidelines to help make sure our students travel between home and Treviglas Academy safely. Please could you read them carefully and also discuss them with your child. I would particularly like to draw your attention to the disciplinary procedures following any poor behaviour reported on any of the buses which travel to and from Treviglas Academy.

At The Bus Pick Up Point

  • Always arrive in good time.

  • You should wait in a safe position. You must behave sensibly.

  • Don’t go near the vehicle until it has stopped.

  • Do not push to get on the bus.

On The Bus

  • Find a seat quickly . You must wear your seatbelt.

  • You must listen to the driver and do as he or she says. The driver’s job is to drive the bus safely, not to supervise young people on the vehicle.

  • Do not move about the bus except when it has stopped.

  • You must not misbehave when you are on the transport. This is dangerous and could distract the driver.

  • Take any litter off the bus with you.

  • Do not cause any damage to the bus. Your parents will be charged for any damage which you cause.

  • Do not use bad language.

 At Your Destination

  • You must not try to get off the bus until it has stopped.

  • You must not cross the road close to the front or rear of a bus or any other vehicle. You must be able to see clearly both ways

  • Remember – be polite and courteous at all times. You are representing yourself, your family and Treviglas Academy. Don’t let them down!

  • Unacceptable behaviour will not be tolerated and action will be taken if you do not follow these guidelines. In serious cases, or following the issuing of warnings, Treviglas Academy reserves the right to inform the Local Authority that a student is suspended or disallowed the right to use the bus service. Your parent or guardian will then be responsible for transporting you to school.

 Parents and Guardians

  • Your child has been allocated to a particular bus. It is important that they travel on this and not any other vehicle. It is important that the school and bus operator knows who is on the vehicle.

  • Please make your child aware of the dangers of behaving in a disorderly way. Please ask them to act sensibly whilst on the vehicle for their own and others’ safety.

  • Help drivers to do their job of getting children to their destinations safely. Please ask your child to show the driver respect and follow any instructions he or she may give. Please encourage them, also, to remain seated at all times and wear a seat belt when fitted. Drivers’ primary function is to transport children from home to School. They may not be able to do this if children misbehave on the vehicle.

  • If you have any concerns about school transport contact Mr Wilson at the school.

 Disciplinary Procedures Following poor behaviour on the bus

Following report of an incident of unacceptable behaviour, the incident will be investigated. If we find one or a group of students is at fault, we will contact their parents or carers to inform them what has happened and the action we are taking. Depending on the seriousness of the incident, and the history of any previous incidents the pupil has been involved in, the course of action may be:

  • Warning letter or

  • Final warning letter or

  • Suspension or ban from school transport

In the event of a suspension or ban it will be the parent or carer’s responsibility to take their child to and from Treviglas. The Local Authority will be informed of the action taken so that they can ensure that any suspension or ban is upheld.

The School’s Commitment

We will:

  • Meet the students off the bus when they arrive at school in the morning

  • Escort students on to the buses at the end of the day

  • Deal with your queries and requests promptly.

  • Investigate thoroughly and impartially all incidents reported . We will respond with our findings as soon as the investigation is complete.

  • Treat everyone equally and fairly, according to the conditions of our policies and contracts.

Welcome back and a very warm welcome to all our new parents and carers.

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back and a very warm welcome to all our new parents and carers.

We have had a super start to the new school year. I have met with the new Year 7 and their first day has been filled with excitement. Inevitably our new students were nervous at the start and it was wonderful to see their confidence grow through the day. All our students look well rested and ready to work hard, and their new uniforms look incredibly smart. Please can I remind all parents and carers that the old uniform can still be worn.

Update – School Funding Issues     

Dear Parent / Carer

 Update – School Funding Issues                                                                              

 I wanted to contact you to provide an update on current issues relating to school funding.  

Sadly, I have to confirm that despite intense lobbying of the Government and Department for Education, matters remain extremely challenging.  In short, schools are still not being provided with adequate funding and resource to deliver the level of provision and support that is expected and that our families and children deserve.

Parent Trustee

The role of a Parent Trustee Parent Trustees are elected by other parents within the Multi Academy Trust (MAT). Any parent, or carer, of a registered pupil at any of the four schools at the time of election is eligible to stand for election as a parent trustee. Parent trustees may continue to hold office until the end of their term of office (4 years) even if their child leaves the school during this time. Schools must make every reasonable effort to fill parent trustee vacancies through elections, however the MAT’s Articles of Association, do make provision for parent trustees to be appointed where the number of parents standing for election is less than the number of vacancies.

As a parent trustee you hold the unique position of having a parental viewpoint. Through the children you will have firsthand experience of the curriculum and how the school is perceived from the parental point of view. You will be able to bring this perspective to the strategic management of the schools. As a parent trustee you must not vote in a particular way because you have been pressed to do so by parents. Objectivity is essential. You are not there to promote the interests of your own children specifically or to be a spokesperson for other parents’ views. You are representative of the parent body, not a representative for them.
