School transport

​Active Travel is considered the safest and healthiest way to get to school and pupils will be encouraged to walk, scoot or cycle where possible. Changes to road layouts around some schools will be maintained to support safe access.

Pupils that are eligible, will continue to receive transport should they attend school. Your school will need to contact the Home to School Transport team with the details of pupils who will be attending so that the necessary arrangements can be made.

All pupils must show their bus pass to the bus driver in-order to use school bus. If any pupil needs a replacement bus pass please email the school transport team on​​​​​​​​​​​​External link opens in a new window and request a replacement bus pass. Please quote your child’s full name, their date of birth, school that they attend, your home address and the bus route number if you know it.

School transport will be available with additional safety measures in place. These will include: 
  • Each vehicle will be classed as a separate bubble,
  • All pupils will be expected to sit in the same seats on their way to and from school,
  • Pupils must not travel if they or anyone in your household has symptoms of COVID-19
  • Hand sanitiser will be available on all vehicles, pupils must apply this when getting on or off the vehicle,
  • Transport operators will have increased cleaning regimes in place and vehicles will be deep cleaned on a weekly basis and all regularly touched services will be wiped down after each journey

Mainstream secondary school pupils are required to wear face coverings while travelling on school buses, minibuses and taxis. This expectation does not apply to pupils with Additional Educational Needs. This guidance does not apply to primary school pupils, however this will be kept under review in line with Government guidance.
