Safety Measures for September

As you are already aware, the school will be a little different in September this year.  We have implemented a number of changes all with the single aim of keeping our children, their families and our staff as safe as possible.  Please keep checking this page to make sure that you are kept up to date, as things still may change!

Please be aware that for all year groups, parents are not allowed on site, unless they have an appointment.

For children who catch public service buses 

Currently, face coverings are required on all public transport.  

Public transport to school

On the busiest public routes, where there isn’t enough space for pupils and commuters under current limitations, the Transport Team have worked with bus operators to provide temporarily an additional 1,200 seats on 30 pupil-only services, where entitled pupils with passes will travel for free and non-entitled pupils can continue to pay fares. New pupil-only services have been added across the county, including in Burton, Biddulph, Stafford, Uttoxeter, Cheadle, Newcastle, Tamworth, Lichfield, Cannock and Coven. The latest public transport timetables, for regular and these additional pupil-only services, are published by each operator.

Parents are asked to provide children with face coverings to be worn during the journey, pupils to use the hand sanitiser provided at the entrance to the vehicle and to use the same seat each time. It is also recommended that pupils wash hands after arriving at school and before and after their journey home. 

And, of course, we would ask that pupils queue, board and disembark in an orderly manner.
