Important Education Transport Information

As you know, from 5th January 2021, schools and colleges will only be open for vulnerable children and the children of critical key workers. Transport will still be available for pupils attending education that are normally entitled to education transport but this should only be used if absolutely necessary to reduce interactions between pupils. Please encourage parents to transport their children to school or college wherever possible.

Transport will run as normal this week but parents MUST inform the Council by Friday 8th January 2021 if their child still needs to use education transport from Monday 11th January 2021 onwards. Parents should complete the Request school transport  form. This message is being shared via social media but we would appreciate it if you could also share this requirement with parents.

If at any time during the current lockdown pupils start attending education again and they need their usual education transport, parents should complete the Request school transport  form.

Please encourage pupils to maintain social distancing, wear a face covering and follow all other infection prevention control measures wherever possible on education transport.

If you are concerned that any transport issue has not been resolved for your school or college, including where you have pupils taking exams that will still require transport please email as soon as possible.
