Our transport operators continue to work hard to ensure your child is safe when travelling. High touch areas are wiped down regularly and vehicles are cleaned thoroughly at the end of each day.
It is highly recommended by Public Health England that face coverings continue to be worn in enclosed spaces – this includes vehicles. Therefore, we expect students over 11-years-old to wear face coverings on our transport services, unless they have a valid exemption. We expect younger children to wear face coverings if they can.
There is no longer any need to sit in year group or class bubbles. However, we do recommend your child sits in the same seat with the same group of people where possible.
Public transport operators can refuse travel if face coverings are not worn, depending on their policy. Your child should respect other passengers on the bus and avoid crowding.
