Transport

Whenever possible, we encourage children to walk to school or to “Park and stride”.

There is limited parking near both schools.  Do be mindful and try to park as safely as possible.  Please do not park on the zigzag lines or block road entrances, on pavements, or in front of residential entrances.

If you have a valid, disabled badge there is parking available in the Middleton Tyas School car park.  At Eppleby Forcett there is a park directly outside the gate for Disabled Access.

Middleton Tyas is served by one North Yorkshire County Council school bus.  It collects our pupils from Stanwick St John and Aldbrough St John.  There is no NYCC bus service for Eppleby Forcett but please click here for more information regarding the County Councils transport arrangements.

Because we work in a unique way and teach children across both sites, in single year group classes, we offer transportation to some of our children.  If your child is registered at Middleton Tyas then they are eligible to use the bus to transport them from Middleton Tyas to Eppleby Forcett each day, whilst they are in their Reception year.  Once they move up to Y1 there will no longer be a need for them to use the transport as they are being taught at Middleton Tyas from Y1-Y6 and as that is the school they are registered at it is parents responsibility to get them there.  The exception to this rule is if they reside in Stanwick St John or Aldbrough St John, in which case you would apply to North Yorkshire County Council for a bus pass that will allow them to board the bus in those villages and be taken to Middleton Tyas.

If your child is registered at Eppleby Forcett then they are eligible to use the bus to transport them from Eppleby Forcett to Middleton each day, whilst they are in Y1-Y6.  Whilst they are in their Reception year there is no need for the transport as they are taught at Eppleby.

How our transport works:

The children (Yr’s 1 – 6) from Eppleby Forcett catch the bus from Eppleby Forcett to Middleton Tyas at 8.05am each morning.  This bus also collects children registered at Middleton Tyas that reside in the villages of Stanwick St John and Aldbrough St John.  They arrive at 8.40am in Middleton Tyas for the beginning of the school day.  At the end of the day, the children are then transported back to Stanwick St John, Aldbrough St John and Eppleby Forcett.

The Reception children from Middleton Tyas catch the same bus from Middleton Tyas to Eppleby Forcett at 8.45am to join their Reception class.  At the end of the day, the reception children return to Middleton Tyas on the bus for 3:15pm.

We have a dedicated member of staff that travels on the bus at all times and knows all of the children.

For all those children using the buses that serve our schools, we require a bus slip to be completed weekly and handed to either school office each Thursday for the following week.
