Walking Bus

Walking Bus
All children are welcome to join the Walking Bus every morning for free!

We walk from the Farmfoods carpark at 8:30am to Barton Hill Academy through Salisbury Avenue, stopping to pick up children along the way. We are limited to a maximum of 16 children per morning.


Walking Bus RouteOn receipt of your completed application form we will supply you with a Walking Bus Pack which confirms your booking and contains a fluorescent vest and a ‘Bus Pass’. As a safety requirement a parent/carer must walk the first journey with their child.


Once you have booked your place on the bus, it is very important that you ring 01803 317931 before 8:30am if your child will not be catching the bus that day. This is a separate telephone line and if your child is going to be absent from school too, you need to ring the school absent line on 01803 314930 to report this.


If you would like to book places for your child then please ask for a Walking bus form at the front office.

Also, if you are available to walk with the Walking Bus at short notice in the event of a staff absence, please let us know.
