Durham Johnston Comprehensive School

Dare to be wise

About half of our students live within walking distance of the school. For the others the Local Education Authority provides school transport from Coxhoe, Bowburn, Shincliffe and Brandon and issues bus passes to most of those students. Behaviour on school transport is monitored by school staff and bus drivers, as well as by the students themselves. Any complaints are taken very seriously indeed.

It is the responsibility of parents to ensure that their children know how to behave properly and safely on school transport. Students on school transport are not directly supervised by adults and it is essential that our students behave appropriately. If they fail to do so it is the LEA and the school’s policy to withdraw the right to free school travel.
