Discuss with your child how they will get to and from school using either the school bus or public transport and maybe have a walk through the route to the bus stop etc. Discuss what time your child needs to get up and the morning routine. Consider what time your child needs to leave home and what time he /she will return along with the need to come straight home and all issues around staying safe. There are places to lock up bikes but please encourage your child to wear a helmet if they choose to cycle and consider carefully if you want them to cycle once the nights draw in. If you pick up or drop off your child by car please consider the impact this has in terms of traffic, the environment and danger at the school gate, it is safer to drop them off or meet them a little way from the school gate rather than dice with the buses and crowds or cause an obstruction stopping on a yellow line.
