School transport

Urgent notice about school transport

Unfortunately, like many other local authorities, the service we are able to provide is being severely impacted by the well-publicised national driver shortage. It may therefore take us longer to put transport arrangements in place. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience, but every effort is being made to minimise the impact on families.

Please note updated guidance from the Department for Education on 29 November 2021 states that children and young aged 11 and over, unless they are exempt, should wear a face covering when travelling on dedicated home to school/college transport

Join our website focus group

We are reviewing the information in the 'Schools and Learning' and 'Children's social care' sections of the website. We are looking for residents who are interested in taking part in a focus group to provide their feedback on the current pages and consider some proposals for change. Please sign-up if you are interested in attending a focus group.
