With schools returning to face to face learning from Monday 8 March, this guidance will help to make sure Somerset pupils can travel to and from school safely:

  • If you live a short distance from your school or college, walk, cycle or scoot to and from school wherever it is possible and safe to do so
  • Avoid sharing a car with anyone outside your household or support bubble
  • If you are using public transport to get to school or college, plan ahead and allow more time for your journey
  • When you are travelling by public or dedicated school transport, don’t forget to:
  • Wear a face covering (unless you are exempt, including if you are aged 11 and under). It is important you wear them for the entirety of your journey, including inside a bus or railway station
  • Socially distance where possible
  • Wash or sanitise your hands regularly
  • Be considerate to fellow passengers and staff.
