Getting to & from school

Walking to School:  

We encourage all families to walk some or all the way to school. We support walking as part of a healthy lifestyle, as well as to help the environment and reduce congestion from cars.

Travelling by bus: 

A ‘My Bus’ school bus provides a service before and after school for our children and covers Crossland Moor, Lockwood, Newsome, Lowerhouses, Almondbury, Waterloo and Rawthorpe.

Travelling by car: 

We encourage parents to consider alternatives to travelling to school by car. Due to the number of cars in the area at drop-off and collection times, severe congestion is a regular problem. Parents and carers travelling to school by car are asked to use the Dalton Schools’ Car Park which is on Grosvenor Road. We ask that everyone avoids parking on the school driveway or on the zig-zags or double yellow lines on the roads around school. The local police support the school in ensuring that our families can get to and from school safely.
