Walking to School

Where possible we do encourage children to walk to school and we work closely with our Road Safety Officer at Wiltshire Council to ensure that children are taught how to walk safely. We would like to look at operating a walking bus from Barton Park/College Fields; please contact the office if you are interested.

For further details please visit the walk to school website.

Using the Bus

Affectionately known as the School Bus, it is, however, a “service” bus and as such could carry passengers other than our children. The service is operated by Salisbury red buses. The bus arrives at school having followed the routes seen below. A member of staff escorts the children on to the bus at the end of the day and a register is taken, so please advise the school office if your child is taking the bus. Bus tickets can be purchased from the office. They cost £10 for a 10 journey ticket.
