This is to let you know the present position with regard to transport to Wyedean from September.
We are working closely with County and have had a telephone meeting today with the Head of Integrated Transport.
Any student who is entitled to free transport to school is guaranteed a seat from September and bus passes will be printed and sent direct to you.
County are doing all they can to bring the spare seat scheme back and you are advised to make an application through the spare seat scheme as normal. County have assured us they are continually reviewing transport in Gloucestershire and as soon as it is safe to do so they will allocate seats to anyone who has applied. Please ensure you apply as soon as possible if you require a seat for your child. They have also confirmed that if there are seats available on buses running into school they will offer these to parents of students who have applied. There will be additional buses coming into Wyedean to comply with social distancing, so it is quite possible there will be seats available for students who are out of our catchment area. If there is a period of time when a seat isn’t available for your child, this will be a temporary situation which will be rectified as soon as possible.
With regard to students living in Monmouthshire, we are again working with Monmouthshire County Council with regard to the private hire of buses to bring our students into school from September. Can you please email email@example.com if you require a seat on the private Monmouthshire bus from September for your child.
We appreciate this may cause issues for you but please do remember that you chose Wyedean School as the best option for your child’s education and this hasn’t changed. Any issues that do arise will be short-lived, given that your child will be at Wyedean for 5 or 7 years.
I hope this helps to allay some fears but if you need any specific transport information for Gloucestershire, please email Integrated Transport at firstname.lastname@example.org
