SEND Transport Leaflet - Getting to school safely from September 2020

24 August 2020 Last updated at 09:15

As the Coronavirus (Covid-19) emergency continues, Shropshire Council is working to re-activate all its home to school transport for entitled pupils from September 2020.

The Government has decided that all schools will re-open in September 2020 and all pupils will return to school. They have issued advice (e.g. Department for Education Transport to School and other places of education; Autumn Term 2020, published 11 August 2020) about how this will be achieved, and the Council is following this guidance as it re-activates the school transport network.

To keep everyone as safe as possible, we will rely on stakeholders’ full cooperation in following this guidance – this includes operators, staff, parents, pupils and schools.  Only by all of us working together will we keep everyone safe as they can be. This offer of Covid-19 safe school transport is made by the local authority to parents/pupils, but if parents/pupils do not wish to accept the offer, they can make their own alternative arrangements for transport to and from school.
