*** BUSES UPDATE ***
Please note, from Sunday 18th September the Child Concessionary Bus and Tram Fare increased from 70p to 80p per journey.
Notre Dame High School has a very wide catchment area drawing on all parts of the city and beyond. Please note that this is a public bus service, not a Notre Dame service.

1. What happens if the bus does not arrive?
Stay at the bus stop as the Bus Company will always send a replacement service. This applies to Bright Bus (green buses) only. In the event of any problems, you can contact Mrs Vivian on 07585512741 who would have the most up to date information.
2. What happens if it snows?
If there is extreme weather before school. Start to check the school website for information about school opening times. This information will also be shared with local radio stations where appropriate announcements will be made. If there is extreme weather during the day, please ensure you have completed the page in your child's journal/planner instructing the school on what arrangements you would like for your child. If any decisions are made regarding early closure etc, we will contact you via our text messaging service.
3. What if my child loses something on the bus?
Please use the Bus enquiry Form on the school's website. Alternatively contact Mrs Vivian directly.
4. What happens if my child misbehaves on the bus?
We monitor journeys through the use of CCTV. The bus providers take any behaviour seriouslyand school supports them on this. Any pupil that causes damage to the buses, bus stops or shelters and / or does not meet the required standard of behaviour on the bus could :
- Have their pass withdrawn.
- Be banned from the bus.
- Be prosecuted by the Police.
- Be required to pay for any damage they have caused.
5. Does the Bus run every school day?
Yes – if your child catches the Bright Bus. However , if your child catches a Powells Bus these are dictated by St Marie's Inset days, term starts and closures. Any issues regarding Powells Buses , please contact Jane Powell on
0170956000 , alternatively please contact Mrs Vivian at school.
