Please see the following message, received this afternoon from NYCC.
Audience : All schools
We would appreciate if all schools and academies could use their own messaging systems to share the following information with parents on the arrangements which will be in place on home to school transport.
We apologise for the lateness of this information, but hope you will understand the short timeframe we were working to in implementing these arrangements.
The school transport network which was in place prior to lockdown will be reinstated for the start of the Autumn term, with services running from the same places and to the same timetable as normal. Vehicles will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before each journey. Parents and pupils are asked to play their part in safety measures by making sure they wash or sanitise their hands before each journey and pupils aged 11 and over wear a face covering unless they have a valid reason for exemption.
