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.
There are a number of school bus services available for pupils travelling to and from St Aidan’s. The bus companies that operate these routes do so independently of St Aidan’s and therefore any queries regarding the routes themselves should be directed to the company that operates the route.
Details of the routes available are below. Please note that these are subject to change and that the bus operators hold the most up to date relevant detail.
Pupils who travel by bus are expected to behave responsibly as a member of the school at all times.
