Bus Behaviour Code For School Buses

This Code has been written by the school and is supported by Metro. The basic thrust of this Code is based on the Health and Safety of all students.

  • Students will remain seated during all parts of the journey.
  • Students will act in a responsible and safe manner at all times.
  • Students will act in a courteous manner with one another, the bus driver and with members of the public.
  • There shall be no smoking on school buses.
  • Students will not ring the bell on the bus other than to indicate the point at which they alight.

The following sanctions will take effect when reports of students not following this Code are drawn to our attention.

  1. Students will receive a verbal warning about their conduct from their Pastoral Leader and parents/carers will be informed.
  2. Students could receive a written warning about their conduct from a Senior Assistant Principal and will receive a fixed term exclusion from the school bus for a period of 2-10 days depending on the seriousness of the offence.
  3. If students are involved in inappropriate behaviour for a second time they will receive a fixed term exclusion from the school bus for a period of 2-10 days depending on the seriousness of the offence.
  4. If poor behaviour continues then it will result in a permanent exclusion from the school bus.

    For serious offences, sanction 2 or 3 may occur straight away. Seating plans may be
    introduced on school buses in the future.
