Travelling to and from school
If your child is walking to and from school we would encourage them, where possible, to always travel as part of a group. We also advise all students to be careful and take the necessary precautions when crossing roads to and from school, particularly when crossing Shawhurst Lane as this can get busy with traffic at the beginning and end of the school day.
We do have a bike shed that students can use at school. Please be advised that students are solely responsible for their bicycles and the school accepts no liability for any damage caused to bicycles on the school’s premises or any theft of bicycles. Students are advised to wear suitable safety wear when riding their bicycles, including a helmet. We require all students to observe the highway code when making their way to and from school on their bicycles. The school reserves the right to inform any students who ride their bicycles recklessly, dangerously or irresponsibly, on their way to and from school, that they will lose the privilege of bringing their bicycle onto the school site and will therefore have to arrange alternative means of transportation.
The Green Bus company runs 2 bus services to Woodrush school.
The 50X starts on Vicarage Road, Kings Heath and goes through King's Heath, Yardley Wood, Maypole and on to Woodrush High School. The 50Y starts on Vicarage Road, Kings Heath and goes through King's Heath, Brandwood End, Druids Heath and on to Woodrush High School.
The journeys are reversed at the end of the school day.
You can get on or off the bus at any bus stop along the way.
Students will need to purchase a bus pass (Swift Card) to use either of these services. To purchase a Swift Card please visit: https://www.thegreenbus.co.uk/
Buses are available to the general public but tend to just carry our students. Most buses have Wi-Fi and CCTV.
You can find full details of the routes and times online at www.thegreenbus.co.uk or ask for a leaflet at student services.
Worcestershire County Council (WCC) also provide a bus service. For more details on routes, eligibility criteria or costs of any remaining vacant seats please contact WCC at www.worcestershire.gov.uk or 01905 765 765
Please be aware that if you are driving your child to and from school that the area immediately in front of school can become congested at the beginning and end of the school day.
Please do not park or drop off your child in the bus bay at the front of school.
