Arriva has asked us to send the following information to our Year 6 pupils:


Student Travel 2021-22


Dear Parents and Guardians

The time is now fast approaching for all year 6 pupils to move up to secondary school, we understand for some pupils this means taking a bus to school for the first time.

Arriva would like to take this opportunity to inform you of the options that are available to support you in getting your child to their new school safely. We provide frequent and reliable bus services across the region, all our buses are Covid-19 secure and undergo enhanced touchpoint cleaning every day.  Arriva’s Child Saver tickets not only provide your child with reduced priced bus travel costs to and from school, but the same ticket can also be used to travel at evenings, weekends and throughout all school term holidays. You can spread the cost of our saver tickets over affordable monthly payments using our easy-to-use direct debit system. It’s simple to apply, there’s no setup fee or minimum contract required, which means you can cancel your direct debit to stop your ticket at any time should your circumstances change.

To arrange your Direct Debit and for further information please follow the link below:

To ensure delivery of ticket in time for the start of the new Academic Year we recommend registering as soon as possible.

Once you have your bus pass, you won't need to worry about paying bus fares again, safe in the knowledge that you have saved money through our Direct Debit scheme.  You can choose to receive your monthly pass by post, or you can download the Arriva UK Bus app onto your child phone, and we can send it there.

Child Saver tickets are valid for pupils up to and including year 11
