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 Bus Provision

The buses leave school at 4:30pm on Tuesday & Thursday and at 5:15pm on Wednesday.

The driver will compile a list of students’ destinations as they get onto the bus and devise a suitable route.

Students that pay for the Clere School Out of Catchment buses to Andover, Basingstoke, Silchester, Tadley can use their usual pass to use this service.  Passes are cream, blue, salmon or lilac in colour.

 

Students that live in the school catchment area are required to pay for the service and will be provided with a late bus pass. Students without a pass, in an emergency, can use the bus to get home that evening but will need to purchase a pass for further use of the bus. Payment is via Scopay (£15.00 termly or £40.00 per annum). Please contact the School Office for further information.

 

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 The privilege place can be withdrawn at short notice if it is needed for a child who qualifies for free transport.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.
