Bus update

The trust and I have been negotiating with local bus companies to provide at least two bespoke bus services through our catchment area. You will have been texted a link to a survey so that we can find out how many parents would be interested in this offer.

The bus would be a prepaid service per half term directly with the company. The cost works out at £2.50 return. Payments would be in advance and on the basis that you have bought a seat for that half term. This would mean if your child didn't use the bus on a particular day there would be no refund. 

Due to this being a private contract on a smaller scale the cost is a little more than public buses but the advantage would be a more bespoke route with the piece of mind that children will be dropped off directly in the academy bus bays and picked up each afternoon from here too. 

If you feel this would be a service you would use please could you follow the link in the text you receive and fill in the simple questions it asks you so that I can decide if the route will be cost effective for the bus companies,

Thank you 
Mr Eccles
