King’s House School Bus Service Terms and Conditions

Use of the Service

By placing a booking with the King’s House Home to School Bus Service, the customer
acknowledges that they have read, understood, and accept the Terms and Conditions as
detailed below.
Please note that to use the School Bus Service, your child is required to use the service for a
minimum of 3 days per week. On some occasions, however, the service may be
undersubscribed, and the school may allow less frequent use. Please contact the school if your
child wishes to use the service on a less frequent basis.
We agree and understand that:
• It is our responsibility to deliver our child in good time to the designated bus stop
before the departure time on each applicable morning and to ensure we or an
authorised adult are at the designated bus stop in good time to collect him/her each
afternoon.
• If our child is not at the designated bus stop at the departure time, the bus will not
wait for him/her and the bus will not stop to pick up our child except at a designated
bus stop.
• We will provide, where required below, details of an authorised adult (decided by us)
to collect our child from the designated bus stop if we are unable to collect him
ourselves. We will telephone the school at least an hour before the end of the school
day to confirm that an authorised adult will collect our child.
• We must explain to our child that he/she must be polite to the bus driver and must
behave well at all times whilst on the bus. We understand that the school rules will
apply while our child is travelling on the School Bus Service.
• We must explain to our child that he/she must wear a seatbelt on the school bus at
all times.
• In signing up to the School Bus Service, our child is required to use the School Bus
Service on at least 3 days of the week.
• If the School Bus Service is undersubscribed, the school may offer the service to a
pupil who wishes to use the service on a less frequent basis, but should another pupil
wish to use the service for the minimum 3 days per week, the school reserves the
right to reallocate the place to that pupil.

Cancellation of School Bus Services

We understand that we must give the School one-half term’s written notice of cancellation of our son’s use of the school bus service.

 

Changing your son’s use of the School Bus Service

The school understands that our child’s use of the School Bus Service may need to change
from time to time, but asks parents/carers to limit such changes to twice a term. On any
morning that our child is expected but will not be on the bus e.g., through illness, we will
contact Kura as soon as possible that morning.

Payment & Refunds

We agree, for each academic year, to pay for the school bus service as an ‘extra’ item on each termly invoice. Use of the services will be charged for in arrears.

Refunds of cost of School Bus Services

We agree that the school is not obliged to refund us for any journeys booked by us and not
taken by our child.

King's House School Bus Service Times

Pick up and drop off times are approximate and will, of course, depend on traffic.  Please also note that the pick-up times are the times the bus is expected to depart the bus stop, so we recommend your son arrives 5-10 minutes earlier than this to ensure he is ready to catch the bus.

Please note that the School Bus Service leaves at 4.10pm, so on the days boys have Games, they would not be able to use the bus in the afternoon.
