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.

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.

Road Safety at Matraville Soldiers’ Settlement Public School

Matraville Soldiers’ Settlement Public School welcomes careful road users. The streets that form the perimeter around the school can become very busy just before and just after school. Collectively, motor vehicles, bicycles, scooters and pedestrian traffic create a potentially dangerous road area.

We ask that all our road users obey the rules of the road and exercise courtesy and caution at all times. For more information about safety in school zones take a look at Safety Town for families.
