    Hmmm I will ask that question when I'm looking at schools. I would rather pay more for a seat belted bus. How on earth do schools take kids on trips without a seat belt?!?

    our buses dont have seatbelts - but certainly each child has a seat.

    definitely no standing

    Where I teach, we would try our best to book a bus with seat belts and 1 seat per child. The problem was that some bus companies would book in a bus for us, tell me they had, say, 40 seats all with seat belts, and then send us a bus on the day with 25 seats and no seat belts. The excursion would be all paid for and kids ready to go, etc, and it is a massive PITA cancelling an excursion because of a crappy bus situation, and the bus companies know this. I wonder if this is what happened in this situation, op? I would be really unhappy for my child to be standing and crammed in, that sounds really dangerous. Maybe you should ring the school as a concerned member of the public, sometimes a phone call like that can make the school look into their policies.
