Adverse weather - Message from Transport Dept:
As you are aware we have suffered severe flooding recently which has disrupted some school transport contracts. In an effort to improve our communication with schools and parents we have set up a website. This advises which schools are closed, routes not operating or restricted routes. If you have a severe weather procedure in place for parents or a Newsletter could you please ask parents to look at the website before calling Transporting Somerset as this will enable staff to answer the Contractors and keep the website up-to-date!
The routes held on the Weather affected routes - School Transport on the webpage are those vehicles with 16 seats or more.
Any assistance that you can offer or advice to parents to ensure they are kept up-to-date is very much appreciated
