How to find us

Pupil behaviour

What happens if my child misbehaves on school transport?

The Welsh Government has introduced the Travel Code, which encourages safe travel to school and sets out the standards of behaviour expected of pupils on their journey. To find out about the code in Bridgend County Borough, click here.

If pupils do not follow the code, for their own safety, and other people's, the council, schools and colleges can take action against them. This might involve taking away their right to school transport and even excluding them from school.

What happens if my child is excluded from school transport?

In the event of a pupil being excluded from school transport, the pupil’s parents or carers will be notified of the period and reason for the exclusion in writing. Parents and carers will be required to make alternative arrangements for the duration of the exclusion to ensure that the pupil continues to attend school.

If the incident is deemed serious enough to compromise the safety of the vehicle or other pupils who are travelling, the exclusion from school transport may be immediate.

What if there has been damage to the bus/taxi?

Incidents that involve damage to the operator’s vehicle may result in the operator seeking to recover the cost of the repairs from the parents or carers.
