Bus Info

School Buses

School buses are available for eligible children attending Broadford Primary School or where seats are available. To be an eligible traveller, the distance from door to door must be no less than 4.8 kilometres. To travel on the bus, parents/carers must complete the ‘PT Form1 Application for Permission to Travel’ and returned to the school office.

Broadford Secondary College coordinates the school buses. If parents/carers want to change the normal arrangements for their children’s bus travel, (eg; student not travelling home on the bus that night) they must provide the school with a written explanation or phone call to the office of the change. NO NOTE OR CALL – NO CHANGE.

Conveyance Allowance

If you live more than 4.8km from your nearest bus stop or school, you may be eligible for conveyance allowance. This is paid to the school and reimbursed to the parent to help with the cost of student travel to and from a student’s nearest government school. Please ask at the school office for an application form. This payment is made at the end of each semester.

First Aid

If children become sick or have an accident at school, they are cared for in the first aid room until contact can be made with parents/carers. If your child is unwell at school, parents/carers or emergency contacts are notified and asked to come and collect them.

Therefore, it is really important to have your most up-to-date contact details at the Office.

The school needs a current daily phone number and that of an emergency contact.

In cases of extreme emergency the school will call an ambulance at the parents’ cost.


All prescribed medication will be stored securely in the school office.

If your child has been prescribed medication that needs to be administered during the school day you will need to fill out a medication form. Please contact the school office to discuss specific requirements.


If your child suffers from asthma, you MUST complete an ‘Asthma Management Plan’. This form needs to be completed by your child’s doctor and will be maintained on file at the school. If the plan is amended please provide an updated version as soon as possible.


Children who suffer with Anaphylaxis MUST have an up-to-date Action Plan.

Children who are at risk of anaphylactic reactions must be identified on enrolment and plans put in place including having their EpiPen at school. Teachers undergo training to assist students who may have a reaction at school and EpiPens are maintained in the first aid room.

Head Lice

Head lice occurs in all schools and are always a source of frustration to families. Parents/Carers are urged to make regular inspections of their child’s hair. When live head lice are found, children are NOT permitted to return to school until treatment has been completed. You should notify the school if your child has head lice and a note will be sent home to all children in that room to have them checked. This is confidential and your child will not be identified.

Infectious Diseases

Children are required to provide the school with an Immunisation Certificate upon enrolment.

Some illnesses require children to be kept at home whilst infectious. If your child has an infectious disease please notify the school straight away. The child must stay at home for the exclusion period. You can find this information on the Department of Health website under the schools exclusion table:
