Getting to and from school safely

As a parent or carer, it’s your responsibility to get your child to and from school safely. Student safety is our priority.

Keep our school community safe by:

  • driving and parking safely, even if it means parking further away and walking the rest of the way to school
  • being a good role model
  • never calling your child from across the road
  • using the safest place to cross the road.

For parents and carers of younger children

Discuss with your child how to be safe when:

Also talk about and practise:

  • safe travel routes
  • plans for when unexpected things happen
  • what to do in wet weather.

Road safety

Campsie Public School welcomes safe and careful road users. Evaline Street - at the front of our school - can become very busy with motor and pedestrian traffic just before and just after school hours. The speed limit on the roadways near any school is 40km per hour during school times  between 8am and 9:30am and 2:30pm and 4pm. The area near the pedestrian crossing just outside the school has a speed limit of 20km per hour. Please be very careful when driving near the school at these times. Children can be easily distracted and can often act unpredictably. 

When picking up and setting down students, please ensure that they exit and enter the car on the passenger side and never in the line of the traffic flow. Campsie Public School has a staff carpark that is accessible from Evaline Street. This area must not be used for  any other purpose and the driveway must be kept clear at all times. There is a public carpark that is adjacent to the school – also accessible from Evaline Street. This area is marked out for angle parking and also has space for drivers whose car displays a disabled driver ticket. The 'no parking' zone at the front of the school means that you are permitted to stop for no longer than 2 minutes and you may not leave your car unattended. Road safety is a shared community responsibility. The staff at Campsie Public School teach road safety as part of the school curriculum and appreciate the cooperation of parents and the community in this important area.

Subsidised school travel

Transport for NSW provides subsidies to assist school students.

  • The School Student Transport Scheme provides eligible students with free or subsidised travel on public transport between home and school.
  • The School Drive Subsidy may help towards the costs of driving children to school if you live in an area where there is no public transport.
