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.
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. Note for 2019: they now cost £15 for a 10 journey ticket.

Please would parents travelling to school by car:
There is no staff parking so visitors will need to allow time to park and walk to the school.
Many of our children walk to school which helps ease traffic in the village of Manton. There is also a service bus - contact the school office for details.
A number of our children cycle to school and there are bike racks outside the main doors.
