Pupils are not expected to wait for buses for more than 20 minutes beyond the normal pickup time when the weather is bad. If a bus has not arrived in this time then students should return home and telephone School for information. There are usually staff at the School from 8am who will take messages or give advice.
In the interests of safety, buses will not run when, for example, the roads are icy or there has been heavy snowfall. Parents should note that when there is no bus in the morning, there will be no return bus at the end of the School day.
If the buses do not run and you bring your child into School, then you will need to collect them at the end of the day. The only exception to this may be if a bus is delayed due to a breakdown. In these circumstances, please telephone the School (01759 302395) to check that there will be a service at the end of the day.
BUSWISE is a partnership between East Riding of Yorkshire Council, schools, parents, pupils and local bus companies.
This partnership will work together to ensure that everyone has a safe and pleasant journey using either the school bus or public transport.
Visitor Parking at Woldgate
Due to the physical capacity of the car park here, it can sometimes be impossible to find a parking place between 8.30am and 4.30pm. This is a situation over which we have no control.
On occasions, such as Open Evenings, we will endeavour to increase parking capacity by making the tennis courts and rear playground available for visitors to park their vehicles.
When visiting the School it may be tempting to drive up and over the verge in an effort to park. We wish to remind our visitors that where a roadside pavement is crossed to reach such a parking place the owner may well be in breach of the law and facing a potential penalty.
Parking on roads within the housing opposite the School is also subject to control. Signs next to and lines on the roads indicate the nature of these conditions.
Out of courtesy when visiting the School, please ensure that you do not block the driveways of our neighbours opposite the School.
Picking-up and Dropping-off Students by Car
We are very concerned to ensure the safety of all those who come to Woldgate. The School car park is extremely busy at the start and end of the day, with many people moving about on foot, on bicycles or in vehicles.
Congestion at these times can lead to increased levels of personal risk and in order to minimise this we urge that should you need to drop-off or pick-up your child at these times you do so a little distance away from the site.
This will help to maintain the safety of those who are on the site and ensure delays to you or the bus drivers is minimised.
