School transport Covid 19 measures

We are making journeys to and from school as safe as possible. We (and the operators we work with) have put in place the measures recommended by the government to protect all those choosing to use school transport if they cannot walk, cycle or travel by car. 

  • we will not provide travel assistance from alternative addresses where families choose to self-isolate at an address other than their normal residence
  • pupils aged 11 and over must wear a face covering on public transport and also on dedicated school transport (unless exempt)
  • pupils travelling by train must wear face coverings (unless exempt), observe social distancing, and remain aware of others at all times.

Full guidance (updated from January 2021 version)
