Safety on school transport

The transport we provide ranges from single-decked coaches, minibuses and taxis. Safety of pupils is our top priority.

All vehicles are checked for roadworthiness by the appropriate agency, but we also arrange additional independent checks on vehicles if any problems are suspected. Seatbelts are a contract condition and are provided in all vehicles.

Drivers and escorts also undergo enhanced PVG checks as an extra safety precaution. 

Vehicles used on secondary school runs are fitted with CCTV.
