Face coverings on school buses
The Department for Transport has published guidance on safer travel for passengers on public transport. This makes it clear that, while everyone over the age of 10 is now required to wear a face covering when travelling in England on public transport, this does not apply to children travelling on school transport. School transport is defined as ‘transport provided by local authorities, academy trusts or schools for the specific purpose of transporting children to and from their home and school’.
