If your child comes to school by car, you must not drive into either the Main School or Bede House car parks. Also, please do not drop or pick up on Oatlands Drive itself – use the side roads instead. If you visit the school, you must only park where permitted – not in places where double yellow lines indicate “No Parking”.
If your child wishes to cycle to school, permission should be sought from their Head of Year. Make sure that their bicycle is safe and properly maintained and in winter they should wear safety armbands so that they can be seen by drivers. It is strongly advised that they wear a safety helmet. The school cannot be responsible for their bicycle while it is on school premises and you are advised to have it insured.
Transdev, one of the largest national providers of school transport, who already provide a number of our routes, have proposed a school network to serve both St Aidan’s and St John Fisher School from September 2018 under their VAMOOZ brand. Please see the documents below for further information and to register for tickets for the VAMOOZ school network.
