School Travel Plan
One of the aims of the school development plan is to further develop as a sustainable school by promoting greener ways of getting to school. As part of the Borough of Poole and national plan Poole Grammar School has devised a Travel Plan which targets reducing our Carbon footprint. On an annual basis data is collected to ascertain what effect school policies are having on travel patterns. This data is also used by the Borough to help it make decisions about increasing the number of cycles lanes, public service buses etc. As we are not a ‘neighbourhood’ school there will always be challenges but we do seek to encourage walking, cycling or using buses to get to school as it is a great way to keep fit. School buses provide a comprehensive service serving most areas and parents who do drive their children to school are encouraged to car share and to drop their children off and pick them up away from the school site for a short walk to promote fitness and wellbeing.

https://bustimes.org/operators/morebus is really useful, it lets you view all the schedules of the Morebus school routes easily, and also lets you view what time the buses arrived at each stop on any day over the past 6 months by clicking “Vehicles”, it also lets you track them on a map.
We have been advised by Morebus that Fernside Road is set to be closed between the 2nd of October until half term due to a collapsed sewer.
The 416, 418, 441 and 443 services will therefore be required to divert around this using Ringwood road, Dorchester road and Pound Lane. Please be aware of this if your child would normally board or alight at the ‘Shah of Persia, Harbour Hill road or Pound Lane stops. Morebus will ask drivers to serve all stops on the diversion. Please be aware this closure will also likely cause delays due to traffic also diverting all over the place.
