The Bus Day is for you if you have a disability or just want to become more confident when using the bus. You will travel on a special service double decker bus learning about different problems that can happen and what to do to keep yourself safe.There will be different scenarios that will play out along the journey and you will get to see how to manage these!

You will learn:
• What to do if things go wrong and how to get help
• How to deal with strangers the right way
• Who you should ask for help

"The pupils were surprised by the actors and what they did so that had a lasting impact. The duration was just right for our pupils with a nice mix of fact sharing and role play. The pupils responded well to the speed and tone of the teaching came away well informed." - Clarendon School
