Transport

Parents are very welcome to bring their children to school themselves if this is practically possible. However, most pupils travel to and from school on transport provided through North Somerset Council. Transport arrangements are supervised centrally by staff at the Town Hall who are responsible for placing the contracts with transport companies. Many different vehicles are used and each has an escort who accompanies the pupils to school. Escorts and drivers are not allowed to make any changes in route without the authority of the transport section in the Town Hall. If you wish to make arrangements for your child to travel to or from a different location (eg to respite care) please give confirmation at least 4 days before by contacting the school transport section.

School Meals

We have a kitchen on site that prepares meals each day. There is a 3 week menu that ensures nationally recognised nutrition guidelines are provided for. There is a choice of main meal and deserts which always include fresh fruit. The kitchen caters for medical and religious dietary needs of all pupils. Prices for meals are available from the school office. Meals can be purchased individually or paid weekly or termly in advance. If preferred, parents/carers may send in a packed lunch for their child. Free school meals are available for those pupils who qualify under the usual terms. Please contact the school office for the relevant information. Members of the class teams support pupils during meal times and pupils are encouraged to eat a balanced meal and develop independence. The school is also able to manage tube feeding where this is prescribed.
