Transport Information

General Information

Please make sure your child has their bus pass on them at all times.  

 In Catchment Transport:  Provided by Hampshire Passenger Transport 01962 846924. 

Out-of-Catchment:  Please contact the school  

 

Travel Insurance

Your child is only covered by insurance if they have applied for a place on a school bus.  If County Transport have not issued you with a bus pass, then you are not insured to travel on the school bus.

 

Provision of free travel

Hampshire Local Authority will advise you if your child qualifies for free transport, either on a school bus or public transport.  To qualify you need to:

  • Attend the catchment school or one that is nearer to your home, and
  • The distance (measured by the shortest available walking route) is more than three miles for children from Year 4 to Year 11, or
  • Your catchment school was your first preference and it was over-subscribed.  In this case, we will provide transport to the next closest school, using the distances in the previous paragraph.


Late Buses

On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday we operate a late bus for pupils that attend after school clubs, leaving the school at 5.15pm.  

The driver will follow the routes below. Stops may be omitted if no student wishes to get off there. Each pupil must let the driver know which stop they would like to use.

 

Tadley late bus can serve:

Bishops Green

Ecchinswell

Headley

Kingsclere

Ashford Hill

Tadley (Mulfords Hill and New Road Roundabout)

Hannington (must always be last stop)

 

Vernham Dean late bus can serve:

Penwood

Curridge Car Sales

Woolton Hill

Hatt Common

Ball Hill

Students staying after school must sign the register in the Main School Hall. They must remain on the school premises during any after school sessions.

 

In order to use the late bus we request a voluntary contribution of £5.00 per term (£15.00 per year). If you wish to contribute please make payments using credit or debit card via www.scopay.com/theclere. If you have lost/forgotten your log-in/password details, please email: finance@clere.hants.sch.uk.

 

Privilege seats

If your child does not qualify for travelling expenses, you may apply for him to be a 'privilege' passenger on school transport. This will depend on whether there are spare seats and only applies if the vehicle is contracted by Hampshire County Council to transport children. The privilege place can be withdrawn at short notice if it is needed for a child who qualifies for free transport.

 

There is a flat-rate charge for privilege seats which is the same for all children whatever their age or the distance travelled. If you receive income support, or income-based job seeker's allowance, you do not have to pay. All drivers are checked either by the school or the local authority; the Vehicle Operating Standards Agency carries out checks on vehicles.

 

Out of Catchment students can purchase an annual bus pass to travel on transport arranged by the school servicing the areas of Tadley, Basingstoke and Andover.  We are currently looking to extend this service to other areas.  Please contact Mrs J Piper, School Business Manager, for more information.
