A revised School Admissions Appeals Code has been published in response to COVID-19, it came into effect on the 24th April 2020 and is due to end or be reassessed on the 31 January 2021. The revised Code gives statutory guidance on how schools should organise and run their pupil admissions appeals and guidance about the changes to the admission appeals regulations during the coronavirus outbreak.
The Council has issued to all providers and school transport operators new guidance yesterday. The guidance sets out in detail the requirements and measures all our travel providers and their operators must implement to ensure that everyone is able to remain safe whilst being transported to and from their school or educational setting.
We have also published information for parents who will be accessing transport. It gives parents information on the measures that we are taking to ensure that their child is transported safely. There is also an option for parents to have a fuel reimbursement rather that a taxi during this time, parents will be able to change back to their original method of transport at any time.
Should you have any queries about the school transport guidance please contact: email@example.com
