Colleagues at School Transport invite parents/carers to take part in their Annual Survey regarding the home to school transport service. Please visit the following link to take part in the survey.
School Transport have advised that there is a road closure taking place at Lower Bathville Armadale from Junction with Old Golf Course Road to Sibbalds Brae to allow essential carriageway maintenance and tree felling. This will affect pupils who use the services SCH 311 and 312, both provided by E&M Horsburgh.
The road will be closed from Monday 19th June to Friday 23rd June. Affected pupils will need to walk to Bathville Cross to access the buses. Timings are not affected.
Parents and Guardians should be advised that applications should now be made for free school transport in session 2017/18. Applications should only be made for pupils going into the following year groups: P1, S1, S5 & S6. All other pupils should retain their current passes for use in 2017/18.
Applications should be made via the Council Website at: https://www.westlothian.gov.uk/article/8692/Applications-for-Free-School-Transport
If pupils have lost their passes, replacement passes can also be requested using the online form. Replacement passes will be sent to their school where they should pay a £2 replacement fee.
Please ensure applications are made by 18 June 2017.
