We are trying our best to make school bus services our priority and run most school bus services to a regular timetable. However, we are expecting to see last-minute cancellations due to the spread of Omicron in the community. Although we’re working hard to update cancellations in our systems, there may be some occasions when these are last-minute and can’t be communicated in time. If any of your bus services do not arrive on time, please liaise with the students, and request them to find or use alternative transport options. https://at.govt.nz/bus-train-ferry/journey-planner/.
We apologise for any inconvenience this might cause.
It is currently mandatory for everyone to wear a mask or face covering on public transport services, including on the way to and from school.
Bus safety is taken very seriously here at KingsWay School with all students held to a in-depth Behaviour Expectations code of conduct which students must abide to. Students and caregivers are asked to read these expectations below and complete the Behaviour Expectations Form. This is for the safety of the bus driver and all students travelling on the school bus.
The safety and comfort of everyone on the bus depends on a standard of behaviour and consideration for others that is expected in the classroom. Caregivers will support the school in maintaining these standards of behaviour.
KingsWay School works with the transport service provider, caregivers and, if necessary, the police to manage student behaviour on buses in accordance with our restorative practice philosophy. This includes, but is not limited to the following steps:
Any further breach will result in a student losing access to bus services on a permanent basis. Additional restorative action will be taken as appropriate. If a student loses their place on the school bus, the caregiver needs to ensure they are meeting their legal obligation to get their child to school.
All parents/caregivers of students who use the buses must complete the Behaviour Expectation Form that says your child agrees to abide by the conditions of this contract and they understand the consequences if they do not.

Bayes Bus Routes
KingsWay students will be picked up at Baxter Street in Warkworth at 7.21am (by Bayes Bus 211) and will be dropped at Puhoi at 7.40am to connect with the Go Bus from there.
Students should arrive at their particular bus stop 10 minutes earlier than the time specified on the bus route. When the bus approaches please wave to the bus, making sure the driver is aware that they need to stop.
All buses depart from Longmore Lane.
Primary students will meet after school at the Junior Campus bus bay and will be transported to Longmore Lane bus bay in time for them to find the correct bus that will take them home.
Students MUST have an AT Hop card and you MUST tag on AND off the bus (or face the consequence: 3-Strikes of not tagging off = no ride on the bus as your card will be locked).
AT HOP cards must be registered to a specific person.
NOTE: Students who are over 16 years of age they will automatically be charged adult fares. To update cards from adult fares to student fares (for students over 16 years) students need to take their Student ID and AT HOP card to their nearest AT HOP Service Centre.
