Home to school transport


It is our priority that children are safely transported and drivers, passenger assistants, parents and school staff are all protected. While we cannot ensure that the driver and/or passenger assistant for your child's journey will be unchanged as the Coronavirus situation evolves, we will do our best to keep transport arrangements as regular as possible.

  • It is not usually possible to apply the recommended social distancing when your child is in a taxi, and this may be difficult even in a bus. If you are concerned about this, you should contact the school for advice.
  • Transport contractors will carefully observe Public Health England recommendations for minimising risk, and symptoms such as a persistent cough or fever would result in a driver following government health instructions, and self-isolating.
  • If your child shows symptoms of Coronavirus, the driver will inform the school that they cannot transport them. If symptoms have developed while your child is at school, it will be the responsibility of the school to arrange an alternative means of getting your child safely home, after which the family should follow the latest guidance from Public Health England on isolation.
