We would encourage all of our students from Broughton Astley to walk, ride or scoot to school. The roads outside the school can become congested at the start and end of school, and this is a much healthier way to travel. Where students are commuting by car from outside the village, please try to drop your child off at less congested areas.
Parents are not to access the College site by car at the start or end of the school day between 8.10am - 8.30am and 3.00pm - 3.30pm ). Please also do not use the school entrance as a turning circle.
If a student has an injury which prevents walking (e.g. on crutches) a Personal Emergency and Evacuation Plan will be drawn up on their first day which may include issuing a car park pass for the time of the impairment. If a parent has a disability and requires access for a meeting at these times, please inform the teacher when the appointment is made.
Following requests from students and ambassadors we negotiated an agreement with the Senior Leadership Team allowing students to bring non-motorised personal transport such as scooters and bicycles into College. This has proved to be a successful development, with students adhering to the following rules:
The penalty for failure to follow these rules will be that the privilege of using personal transport is removed from the perpetrator for a fixed period of time. Student ambassadors and delegates have worked hard to get this for the whole student body. It is up to us all to ensure that there is no abuse of this privilege. The College has no legal responsibility for the loss, damage or theft of any personal transport while they are on College premises and grounds.
Students from outside Broughton Astley normally travel to school by bus. A small number will use the public service Arriva Routes, whilst most students in catchment area will travel on one of the contract bus routes provided by Beaver Bus and Ausden Clarke. Bus routes can be changed at any time, so please follow the links below to find the latest route information, or contact the provider directly with your queries.
Beaver Bus (Contract routes 837 and 839)
Ausden Clarke (Contract route TE1)
Arriva (Public bus route X84)
The Local Authority is under a legal obligation to facilitate “the attendance of persons receiving
education” by providing transport to schools. This does not mean free transport for all students. The Local Authority use Beaver Bus for transport to Thomas Estley.
