Dear parents / carers,
To coincide with the new academic year (2021/22), all Powys learners using the home to school transport service will be issued with a new state of the art bus pass to be used from September 2021 onwards.
The new bus passes will have an individual QR code which will be scanned by the driver each time your child uses the home to school transport.
This will not only allow Powys County Council to provide and run an efficient service across the county, but will also ensure an accurate record of individual learners on any bus, at any time, to conform with Track Trace & Protect purposes.
Being able to quickly and accurately ascertain which pupils are using each bus or other modes of home to school transport at any one time, ensures we can keep pupils and staff safe in the event of any further outbreaks of coronavirus or other infections or situations in the future.
To ensure we have the most up to date information before printing all the new passes, we would like to confirm the information we hold for each learner is correct.
Please can you complete a separate questionnaire for each child you have that uses the home to school transport service.
PLEASE NOTE, FAILURE TO COMPLETE THE QUESTIONNAIRE MAY RESULT IN A DELAY IN ISSUING YOUR CHILD WITH A NEW BUS PASS.
The introduction of the new Powys bus passes does not mean that there will be a change in the home to school transport service currently being provided.
