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.

Fairfield High School Transport

Students who live more than 2 km (as the crow flies) or 2.9 km (by the most direct route) from the school boundary are entitled to free bus passes. Private transport to the School should be only in the family car driven by an adult member of the family. 

Travelling by Bus             

A high standard of behaviour is expected of our students, travelling on a school bus. Students travel for free and are expected to give up their seat for a paying passenger. You are reminded that you are an ambassador for the school when in uniform and on school buses.


Your safety is of the highest priority to the school and your parents. Please take care when riding your bicycle to the school. Helmets must be worn.  On arrival your bicycle must be left at the bike rack near the library. You are advised to secure your bicycle and helmet with a lock and chain. Under no circumstances are students to ride bikes in school grounds.


Some students live close enough to school to walk. Care should be used when crossing roads, and use of the overhead bridge and traffic lights is essential for student safety.

Skateboards and Scooters

If skateboards or scooters are used by students to get to school they must be left in a Deputies office during the day. Under no circumstances are students to ride bikes in school grounds.

Car Travel

The School strongly discourages senior students driving cars or riding motor cycles to school. However, if a vehicle is to be used, the following conditions must be met:

Students driving vehicles must hold a valid driver's licence, and conform to the road rules including wearing seatbelts and driving in a safe manner. Students are not allowed to travel as a passenger in a vehicle driven by another student.

Cars may not be parked within the school grounds. Students must not go to their cars between arriving at the school and leaving for home.


Excursions take many different forms. They are usually organised by particular subject departments. When an excursion is organised, you will need to obtain two things - money to pay for whatever expenses have to be met and a consent note from your parents giving permission for your involvement.

When you go on an excursion or a sporting visit, School uniform is compulsory unless you are advised otherwise. When you are outside the School as a group, you are judged on your appearance and conduct. If you are unable to come up to the standard required, the School may decide not to allow you on further excursions.

Sometimes activities similar to excursions (e.g. drama performances, films, etc.) are organised within the School. These activities are organised to help your education and you are asked to assist by doing your part properly.

Money for excursions must be paid by the due date; otherwise you will NOT be allowed to attend the excursion.

If you have financial difficulty in relation to an excursion, mention it confidentially to the teacher in charge of the excursion well in advance. It may be possible to make arrangements to assist you.


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.
