Important Education Transport Information – Updated with extension to the deadline
As you will be aware, from 5th January 2021, schools and colleges are only open for vulnerable children and the children of critical key workers. Transport is still available for those students attending Somercotes Academy who are normally entitled to education transport but this should only be used if absolutely necessary to reduce interactions between pupils.
Lincolnshire school transport will run as normal until Friday 15th January but parents MUST inform the Council by Wednesday 13th January 2021 if their child still needs to use education transport after Friday 15th onwards. Parents should complete the Request school transport form.
If at any time during the current lockdown your child starts to attend the Academy again and they need their usual education transport, parents should complete the Request school transport form.
Please encourage your child to maintain social distancing, wear a face covering and follow all other infection prevention control measures wherever possible on education transport.
Please visit www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/school-college-transport/covid-19-information-school-transport/ for more information.
Parents of students travelling on the TMAT routes from Louth/Manby/Grimoldby and Holton-le-Clay (PC Coaches) do not need to complete this form but should inform the Academy of any changes to their transport needs.
