We have spoken to the bus companies who service the school; they have confirmed that face coverings should be worn by all students at all times during the journey. They have also put social distancing rules into force and a number of seats will be marked off limits to passengers. Would you remind students that they should stow their facemasks safely before entering school.
We believe the times of the services that run to or past the school remain the same but please do check the timetables regularly at https://travelsouthyorkshire.com/en-gb/journeyplanning/timetable-finder as the majority of buses to school are service buses and not managed by the school or local authority.
We have been informed that by First buses that there is a change to the X5 service. They have put on a new service for school children only, no. 605. This largely replaces the X5 service to the school and appears to arrive/depart at the same time as the X5 previously. The X5 is still in service but will carry any passenger and once it is full (bearing in mind the reduced numbers allowed on each bus) will not pick up anyone further. The X5 will not run to the school, instead it will be terminate at the interchange.
