Getting Children to School


The initial guidance from the Department for Education for the Full Opening of Schools from September has now been published.
Getting children to school from September is undoubtedly going to be a challenge for schools, parents and transport providers. However, working in partnership with schools and parents/carers we can make it work well.

More guidance will follow but we are working with the Local Education Authority and the individual schools to ensure we follow the guidance available to ensure the safety of drivers and students when they travel on school transport.
 

Using our home to school transport:

The guidance for ‘Dedicated School Transport’ does not require the social distancing in place as for public transport. This means that we will largely be running our normal service and vehicle capacity. We will liaise with the individual schools and may need to change timetables in line with their decisions.
 

Grouping/seating children on the buses:

As far as is logistically possible we will group children on the vehicles to reflect the year group bubbles in school, however on some journeys this may not be possible.
 

Face coverings:

Whilst face coverings are not compulsory on Dedicated School Transport, the local authority and Flagfinders are encouraging children over the age of 11, who are not exempt, to wear face coverings whilst travelling.
 

Hand Sanitiser:

We would request that children have their own hand sanitiser and use it before boarding and on disembarking. Hand Sanitiser will be available on the vehicles but waiting for each student to use it will present crowding issues that we want to avoid
 

Disinfecting/Sanitising the vehicles:

In accordance with current guidelines all our vehicles will be disinfected/sanitised using daily enhanced cleaning regimes. Any vehicle that is used on more than one route will be sanitised between journeys.
 
Food and drink on vehicles:

In order to minimise any risk we would request that food and drink are not consumed on our vehicles at any time.

Anyone with symptoms in the household
Please do not travel if you or anyone in your household is displaying symptoms of Covid-19.

We thank you for taking the time to read this and ask for your support in implementing the
measures we are putting in place. With your help we will be able to provide a clean and safe
environment for everyone.

Students who do not comply with the guidance will not be able to travel.
We will update you going forward regarding the position for your particular school once the
information is available.
