On every bus there is a bus matron whose main duty is to look after the pupils on
the bus. Pupils are expected to treat matrons, as with all adults at the College,
with the utmost of respect at all times. Matrons are also trained to maintain
discipline and order on the bus. Bus drivers and bus matrons have all been
trained to provide a smooth and safe process for those on the bus.
If parents have a complaint about the buses, they will be able to contact the bus
matrons. If the bus matrons would like to report an issue regarding a pupil, the
bus matron will file an incident report which will then be investigated and
circulated to the respective parents if deemed necessary.
