Amotherby Community Primary School


Please find information below regarding transport to and from our School.


North Yorkshire County Council provides free school transport for children who live more than 3 miles from the school and are within the school’s official catchment area.


If you are in doubt about qualifying for free transport please contact school and we will attempt to clarify the situation.


Any children not covered by the above arrangements are expected to find their own way to and from school.


The teaching staff supervise all children at the end of the school day and every effort is made to ensure that they get home safely. However, once the children have left the school premises and have boarded buses, walked home or been collected by car, the responsibility for their safety and behaviour passes to parents or the bus company.

Poor behaviour on the school bus  will not be tolerated and coach operators are empowered to refuse to transport children who are persistently troublesome.
