Update on school buses for September 2020

Notts and Derby will continue to run our school buses as normal, following their usual routes and timetables. All pupils using the school bus must wear a face covering unless they are exempt from doing so. Those who are exempt must communicate with Miss Cwynar prior to returning to school.

As we operate a dedicated transport service, the DfE guidance therefore does not limit numbers on buses.​ However, wherever possible, we encourage parents and carers to make alternative transport arrangements in order to reduce the numbers travelling on these buses.

All pupils will be seated in dedicated year group locations on each bus.

Drivers will have distancing procedures in place eg glass screens and loading/offloading procedures to limit contact.

Please click the links below to download a copy of the bus timetables for this academic year.

If you have any questions regarding the bus timetables, please contact us on 01332 557032.

NOTTS AND DERBY (£1.80 per single journey, or £3.20 for two trips, with B-Line card)
