Travelling to school safely

March 4, 2021

As all students return to schools, please see below for reminders on travelling to and from school safely:

  • if you live a short distance from your school or college, walk, cycle or scoot to and from school wherever it is possible and safe to do so
  • avoid sharing a car with anyone outside of your household or support bubble
  • if you are using public transport to get to school or college, plan ahead and allow more time for your journey
  • when you are travelling by public or dedicated school transport, don’t forget to:
    • wear a face covering (unless you are exempt, including if you are aged 11 and under). It is important  you wear them for the entirety of your journey, including inside a bus or train station
    • social distance where possible
    • wash or sanitise your hands regularly
    • be considerate to fellow passengers and staff.
