    School Bus September 2020

    We are still waiting on Government guidance at this time regarding the bus running a service in September. thanks for your patience.

    Derbyshire County Council (DCC) have informed me that there is no statutory duty for a bus service up into Tibshelf, as children are not over 2 miles away from school.

    If a service did run the exact money for the fare, with no change given, would be required, it is not possible to pay for the service via parent pay. Potentially the service may have to run in bubbles.

    Therefore, because we are unclear at this time if there will be a service and what they may look like for all pupils. we ask that for September you make alternate plans for transporting your child to and from school.

    However, we obviously do not want further congestion caused by additional cars on Alfreton Road. The physical position of the school does give rise for concern about pupil safety - we do not want a rising number of cars in the area at drop off and pick up time creating a safeguarding concern.

    In September, pupils will have staggered start and end times to the school day. This will hopefully ease some of the congestion. But to help further, we ask that you encourage your child to make a healthy lifestyle choice of walking, cycling, scooting to school (with a helmet please). If anyone would like to start a walking bus, please contact me. Please see the attached information about starting a walking bus.

    Please share your views by completing this DCC survey by July 31st, which when published the link will be sent out to you.

    Thank you for working with us to ensure all pupils have a safe and healthy journey to school.

    Yours
    Mrs White
    Headteacher
