Where your son / daughter can, they should wear a face covering if they are over 11 years old whist on school transport. There is no requirement for primary aged pupils or children who are exempt to wear one, although it is strongly recommended. If travelling by public bus a face covering must be worn if your son / daughter is over 11 years old.
It is the responsibility of the parents and students to make sure they wear a face covering. Drivers are not responsible for enforcing face coverings, neither are we encouraging them to challenge students.
Please have a closer look at the FAQs on our website for more detail regarding home to school transport.
