At Engage Academy, we work closely with the parents and child, to ensure the most appropriate arrangements are put in place to ensure good attendance at school. Pupils could be transported/escorted to and from school by parents, transported by school staff using our designated vehicles or by our approved taxis. Pupils with an EHC plan can apply to the local authority for transport support. Travel arrangements will be reviewed regularly to ensure we are supporting our pupils correctly.
Safeguarding and Transport
When pupils are picked up and dropped off at home, it is expected that parents will escort their child to and from the vehicle whether school transport or taxi.
Pupils in Key Stage one will need to be escorted by an adult if their designated transport is one of our approved taxis.
Pupils must sit in the back of the vehicle and comply with travel safety arrangements; car seat or booster seat if required, seat belts on at all times.
