The School does not deal with transport, but is pleased to offer the following notes for guidance.

Devon County Council School Transport
For children joining Colyton Grammar School or moving into Year 12, free school transport/Post-16 Transport assistance is available to children/students whose nearest secondary school to the home address is Colyton Grammar School, provided that they live more than three miles from the school (measured by the shortest available walking route).   

Low Income entitlement (Years 7-11)
Special arrangements apply for students on Free School Meals or whose families are in receipt of the maximum level of Working Tax Credit.  If Colyton Grammar School is one of the three nearest secondary schools to the home address and is within 2 to 6 miles of the home address, there may be an entitlement to free school transport on ‘low income’ grounds.

Paying transport on Devon County Council routes
Concessionary (paying) transport may be available on some Devon County Council routes from October each year.

School bus supervision:  A member of staff is on duty daily to supervise students. If a student misses a bus, he or she will be taken back to school and parents informed.

TRAFFIC FLOW FOR PARENTS BRINGING OR COLLECTING STUDENTS FROM SCHOOL

The following arrangements are encouraged in the interests of safety:

Start of school day: Arriving from a southerly (Axminster/Seaton/Sidmouth) direction - drive into Whitwell Lane, right into school and drop off outside Headteacher's office.  Leave school and turn south (to the right) down Stafford Lane

Arriving from a northerly (Colyton) direction - drive down Stafford Lane, turn right into main school/sports hall car park and drop off at top of car park.  Please do not stop to drop off and/or turn in entrance to car park, as this causes a hazard to other road users and pedestrians.

End of school day: All parents to pick up from school car park, utilising the full capacity, whilst awaiting the end of the school day.  Please do not park and/or pick up in the entrance of the car park.

In order to ease congestion it would be appreciated if parents collecting students by car would arrange to do so after 3.45pm.  Your co-operation would be much appreciated.

SIXTH FORM DRIVERS

Due to very limited parking on the school site and the absence of ‘on street’ parking in the immediate vicinity of the school, sixth form students should not consider driving themselves a viable option. Parking permits are issued only for exceptional medical reasons.
