Travel arrangements for September 2020

See what arrangements we are making for the return to school in September with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Read the Government's guidance for dedicated transport to schools and other places of education for autumn term 2020.

It is likely that at the start of September when schools go back, social distancing measures will still be in place.

This will impact the amount of students we can take in the passenger service buses and private cabs.

We are working out how to prioritise spaces in the fairest way. We will be considering:

  • how far students have to travel
  • how complex their journey is
  • the specific needs of each student

If you are able to help and make your own arrangements for your child to get to school we may be able to help.

If you are able to drive them, we would cover the costs of petrol. If you do not drive we may be able to cover the cost of a private taxi such as Uber.

To organise this email tct@lewisham.gov.uk to discuss any arrangements.

We cannot reimburse you for anything that we have not agreed in advance.
