Student Safe

The Kelvinside Academy Transport Platform operate in partnership with StudentSafe.  This offers parents a technology-led transport management solution with many benefits including increased safeguarding which is always our number one priority. There is a registration fee of £100 per child per year.

We hope that it will also encourage more parents to take advantage of the free bus journeys to and from school to help reduce emissions on the School Run.

The fobs used by the children to register as they get on the bus each day will be distributed to them during the first week of Autumn term.
