Given current road conditions it is not possible for the council to guarantee school transport, as it the responsibility of the School Transport Operator to risk assess this provision.

When schools re-open, travel to and from school will, in many instances remain difficult and parents/carers are advised to check that pupils can get to and from school safely before they set out. The decision to access schools when conditions could be difficult can only be made by the parent/carer.
