Getting to and from school safely

As a parent or carer, it’s your responsibility to get your child to and from school safely. Student safety is our priority.

Keep our school community safe by:

  • driving and parking safely, even if it means parking further away and walking the rest of the way to school
  • being a good role model
  • never calling your child from across the road
  • using the safest place to cross the road.

Safety Around Schools material from the NSW Centre for Road Safety

These resources have been developed in 2020 with input from school community stakeholders and the agencies responsible for road safety around schools.

The Keeping our kids safe around schools (PDF 1.5Mb)  fact sheets have road safety information for families and the wider school community.

The ten fact sheets provide information on:

  1. Keeping your children safe when dropping off and picking up at school.
  2. Walking together safely to and from school.
  3. Keeping children safe in and out of the car.
  4. Hold your child’s hand.
  5. Wearing helmets and riding safely.
  6. Your guide to driving and parking safely near schools.
  7. Keeping safe around school crossings.
  8. 40km/h school zones.
  9. Driving safely near school buses.
  10. Helping children on and off the bus safely.

This resource (available in 12 other languages) and other information for schools can be found at https://roadsafety.transport.nsw.gov.au/stayingsafe/schools/backtoschoolsafety.html.

For parents and carers of younger children

Discuss with your child how to be safe when:

Also talk about and practise:

  • The School Student Transport Scheme provides eligible students with free or subsidised travel on public transport between home and school.
  • The School Drive Subsidy may help towards the costs of driving children to school if you live in an area where there is no public transport.
