Pay Seats on school transport vehicles for the 2020/21 academic year

Thumbnail

Summary

In anticipation of ongoing social distancing requirements, the decision has been taken to suspend the offer of Pay Seats on school transport vehicles for the 2020/21 academic year. This will enable any additional capacity on vehicles, usually absorbed by Pay Seats, to be used to socially distance children with a statutory entitlement to school transport.

Main News Story

Pay Seats are a discretionary offer on school transport vehicles and policy allows them to be withdrawn with 2 weeks’ notice. The decision has been taken now, in order to give parents sufficient time to make their own arrangements for the coming academic year. The decision affects 292 children travelling to 38 schools. Parents will receive a letter from the LA to inform them of the decision.​
