   SCHOOL TRANSPORT INFORMATION (COVID-19)   

 

Due to the increase in confirmed Covid-19 cases within schools all learners are now required to wear

face masks on school transport.

 

 It is the responsibility of the parent/carer to provide face coverings.  Three layer face coverings are recommended.

 

Some learners need not wear a face covering.  This includes those for whom doing so would create a medical risk,

cause distress, and in some situations where a learner has additional learning needs.

 

 

ALL learners will need to show their bus pass on every journey.
