Protection needed when settings organise transport for children

If the children or young people being transported do not have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) or a positive coronavirus (COVID-19) test, there is no need for additional measures to be taken. Read COVID-19: safer transport guidance for operators for further guidance on how to provide safer services. In non-residential settings, if a child, young person or student displays coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms, or has a positive test, while at their school they should avoid using public transport and, wherever possible, be collected by a member of their family or household. In exceptional circumstances, if parents or carers cannot arrange to have their child collected, if age-appropriate and safe to do so the child should walk, cycle or scoot home following a positive test result. In exceptional circumstances, if this is not possible, and the setting needs to take responsibility for transporting them home, or if a symptomatic child or young person needs to be transported between residential settings, you should do one of the following:

  • use a vehicle with a bulkhead or partition that separates the driver and passenger
  • the driver and passenger should maintain a distance of 2 metres from each other
  • the driver should use PPE, and the passenger should wear a face covering if they are old enough and able to do so
The local authority may be able to help source a suitable vehicle which would provide appropriate protection for the driver, who must be made aware that the individual has tested positive or is displaying symptoms.

The NHS School Age Immunisation Service Team will be in school on the 13th October 2021. Please see the parentmail message around consent for this vaccine. As the school only provides the room for the vaccine, please direct all questions around the vaccine and consent to the NHS team.
