All information relating to school transport, can be found on the Suffolk On Board website; arrangement of students’ transport to Ormiston Sudbury Academy is not the responsibility of the Academy. The Suffolk County Council transport website is the best place for information www.suffolkonboard.com and to check eligibility and if there are any parental concerns or queries regarding transport for their child(ren), they are also advised to contact Suffolk County Council (and not the Academy) in the first instance.
It remains the responsibility of parents to make appropriate arrangements for their child’s travel to school, whether this be walking, cycling, car or public transport; in certain circumstances, Suffolk County Council may be able to offer some assistance but unfortunately, schools themselves (including Ormiston Sudbury Academy) are not involved in these arrangements.
