We are working hard to get our special schools’ transport back on the road from 24th August. We were not able to confirm arrangements until guidance on school transport was published by the Department of Education on 13th August and this has reduced the time we available to put arrangements in place and notify parents.
We are aiming to have as many of our EA yellow buses, private buses and taxis operating as possible this coming Monday. If the route is running a child from any year group can use the service.
If transport for your child will be affected, we will be in direct contact with you. Parents should be aware of the Department’s advice that school transport should only be used where you have no other alternative.
Finally, if you have any further concerns relating to your child’s special needs transport arrangements, please call the Transport Helpline on 028 9598 5959.
