  1. Q. What is a walking bus and how do I set one up?
    A. A Walking Bus is an organised rota of children and parent helpers, who walk to and from school together. The group uses a set route with ‘stops’ along the way.

    The group moves safely under the guidance of trained adults. All children and adults on the bus wear bright reflective jackets for safety. All adult leaders will have a CRB (Criminal Records Bureau) check and full road safety training is given by a County Council Road Safety Officer.

  2. Q. How do we get a School Crossing Patrol at our school?
    A. Contact the Head Teacher of the local school who can then request a site visit. Prior to the visit we will require full details of the recommendation and where the site should be located. Site assessments are scored taking into consideration the highway conditions, volume of traffic and number of pedestrians.
