Bus transport policy

Gulf British Academy aims to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all pupils at all times. Listed below are the rules pupils must follow when using the transport service:

  • No eating or drinking (except water) allowed on the bus
  • Pupils must respect and listen to school personnel on the bus
  • Pupils must take responsibility for their own property and respect the property of others
  • Pupils must remain in their seats – hanging out of the windows is not allowed
  • Throwing objects in or out of the bus is not allowed
  • Verbal, visual and physical abuse on the bus will not be tolerated
  • Pupils need to be punctual in getting to the bus in the morning. The bus will only wait for 3 minutes before it leaves
  • Damage done to the bus will be charged accordingly to the parent of the pupil concerned

What happens if rules are broken?

We look forward to your support in ensuring that your child follows these rules. If the rules are broken, the following will apply:

FIRST INCIDENT – written warning issued and parents requested to sign and return a copy of the letter

SECOND INCIDENT – 5-day suspension from transport use. Parents requested to meet Head of School

THIRD INCIDENT – Parents will be informed and the pupil will be taken off the bus permanently

Important

Please note that the bus service is based on the address given at the time of registration. However, if you choose to change your location / bus route, we cannot guarantee that the seats will be available on another bus. Kindly check with the school at least a week before you plan to move.

The bus assistant or the driver is not allowed to leave the bus nor are they permitted to drop the pupil off in the house or inside the school building.

Pupils who are dropped off after school need to be collected within 5 minutes upon arrival at your house. In case no one responds within 5 minutes, the student will be brought back to school and the parent will have to pick them up from school as soon as possible on the same day.
