Travel and Transport to School

School Escorts and Newsletter

To ensure that our pupils travel with the minimum stress, and the best care, we directly employ 700+ staff, known as School Escorts, to accompany them on their journey from home to school. Our School Escort Service is highly regarded, and the Escorts themselves receive a comprehensive range of training courses.

School Escorts receive training in First Aid, Lifting and Handling, Autism and  Epilepsy Awareness, as well as areas like Child Protection, Managing Challenging Behaviour and a number of other courses. Our Escorts are regularly visited by our team of Risk Assessors to ensure that they are not at risk, and are properly trained in the needs of the particular children that they are escorting.
