Bus Incident Update – Message from Mr Roberts

I am sure you will have all now heard of and seen the news stories relating to the bus incident earlier today.

We are all shocked that such a traumatic incident has taken place on one of the shared school bus routes this morning. We are, however, thankful that while some pupils have sustained some injuries, none appear at this stage to be serious, life changing or life-threatening. A small number of students have been to hospital to be assessed and treated.

We thank the emergency services, who we have worked very closely with to manage the situation, staff, pupils, and parents for their quick and calm response to the incident as well as the wider community who have offered us their support.

Colleagues from the academy were able to be at the site quickly with a minibus to take pupils to school if they felt well enough, where extra support was provided to the pupils involved and all parents were contacted.

I have also visited pupils at the hospital today, and the academy will continue to provide as much support as we possibly can for our community during this time.
