Schools that are already open to children of key workers and vulnerable learners who have not announced they will be opening more widely, will still remain open for those pupils.  

Schools will contact parents directly to let them know when they are opening.

Each school has carried out a risk assessment to plan safety and hygiene measures and social distancing for their specific circumstances. These might include staggered start times for dropping off and collecting pupils and schools will be in touch with parents to let them know.

Secondary Schools

Students in Years 10 and 12, currently have access to some face-to-face teaching time in school, as they study for exams they are due to sit next year.  Currently, a quarter of these year groups are in school at any one time. Schools have devised their own, bespoke arrangements for social distancing while students are in school, tailored to their individual school site and classroom layout.

Arrangements are currently being made for other groups to return in September.

Catch-up education

The Government announced on June 19, a £650 million of support for “catch-up education”, which will be shared nationally across state primary and secondary schools over the 2020/21 academic year.

Primary and secondary schools in North Yorkshire will be deciding over the next few weeks how best to spend this money within their own school once details are confirmed. Schools will be looking at a variety of models from “bolt-on” lessons at the end of the traditional school day, to small group tuition. Your child’s school will come up with the most appropriate approach according to the school population, teaching staff availability and individual pupils’ needs.

Holiday childcare

The Government has also announced that organisations offering holiday clubs and activities for children over the summer holidays should be able to open, as long as they run protective measures in place at the time such as social distancing and hygiene rules. 

You can find details of childcare and holiday provision across the county, as well as other community groups and organisations, on our community directory North Yorkshire Connect.

Our internet connection is poor. Is there any other way our child can join online lessons?

Many schools have assessed provision and access to IT. Where it is not possible, teachers have been sending work home in paper form so pupils can complete. Some schools with their weekly phone calls to check well-being can talk about work completed and any issues.

Will my child be returning to primary school before the school summer holidays?

Please see the government guidance for parents and carers which clarifies which children are able to return to schools before the summer holiday

Is it compulsory that my child attends school?

Government Guidance states that:

  • We strongly encourage children and young people in the eligible year groups and priority groups (such as children of critical workers) to attend, as requested by their school or college, unless they are self-isolating or there are other reasons for absence (such as shielding due to health conditions).
  • You should notify your child’s school or college as normal if your child is unable to attend so that staff are aware and can discuss with you.

Parents will not be fined for non-attendance at this time.

Will my child be provided with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) while at school?

We have provided each school with emergency PPE, this is for any pupil or staff that should fall ill whilst at school.

Children or staff will not be expected to wear PPE during the day, you can find out more from the Government guidance on PPE in schools.

If I am in a high-risk category e.g. pregnant, should I send my child to school?

The government have released guidance that states those who are at high-risk and have children in the priority year groups are safe to send their children to school. However, if you are at extremely high-risk you should seek medical advice from your GP. At this time parents will not be penalised for not sending their children to school, therefore in these cases it is a parental choice.

How many schools in the county are re-opening?

From the week commencing 1 June, 111 schools will be re-opening across North Yorkshire, increasing to 135 in the week commencing 8 June. Following government guidance, secondary schools will not be re-opening until the week commencing 15 June.

Will my child be safe when they return to school?

Every school will have completed a thorough risk assessment before reopening and will have worked closely with us to ensure social distancing and increased cleaning measures will be in place.

Will social distancing stop my child from having a normal school day?

Alterations will be in place and it will be different for children, however schools are working hard to ensure children’s wellbeing is the main focus upon return. Younger children will still be able to sit close to and play with a ‘bubble’ of children to try and maintain social relationships.

Home to School Transport 1 June to 21 July 2020

The information below applies where North Yorkshire County Council provides Home to School Transport.

This process is not applicable for special schools and Pupil Referral Service. Arrangements for transport to and from these schools are being managed separately by the SEND Transport Team. Please liaise directly with your school.

If your school provides the transport directly you must contact them to determine what arrangements will be in place.

Please read and ensure that your child can understand this guidance

Staying alert and safe social distancing

Safer travel guidance for passengers

Your school will have confirmed with you their opening arrangements.

Operators will be running vehicles along usual routes with normal pick up and drop off times.

We will arrange travel for entitled pupils where we have sufficient notice, and that in doing so we will try to provide for social distancing, but we cannot guarantee it or enforce it.

It is important we know who will travel so we can try to ensure sufficient seats to provide suitable distance between pupils but that we understand if parents do not wish their child to travel on council transport at this time, and that they are entitled to make their own arrangements.

So that the Council can assess demand and make appropriate arrangements we require that existing users of Council provided transport who wish to use services complete the survey below if they require home to school transport.

This should be completed on a weekly basis, but only if;

  1. Your school has confirmed that your child can attend
  2. Your child normally travels on NYCC home to school transport
  3. You intend your child to travel on this transport

Enter the school name

A list of schools will appear as you type

 

A list of schools will appear as you begin to type the name of the school. If the school does not appear, please ensure you have spelled the school correctly or try an alternative name if your school is known by another name. If you are unable to select your school, you can send your request by email to: schooltransport.services@northyorks.gov.uk. Please include the following information:

  • your full name;
  • your child's name and date of birth;
  • the name of the school; and,
  • the days of the week the transport is required.

Once you have completed your application, transport will be arranged for the days you have requested where possible, subject to confirming your child’s eligibility.

Your child will be collected from their usual pick up point at the usual time.

If for any reason we are unable to arrange transport or there is a change to your usual transport provision we will contact you using the details you have provided.

For transport in the week commencing Form closes at 12pm on
1 June 26 May
8 June 2 June (9am)
15 June 8 June
22 June 15 June
29 June 22 June
6 July 29 June
13 July 6 July

If you have any queries relating to the application form or home to school transport, please call our customer service centre on 01609 780780.

I don’t want my child to use public transport but I can’t get them to school at the time specified. What can I do?

Please contact your school to discuss your circumstances.

I have missed the deadline for arranging Home to School Transport.

If you have missed the deadline we cannot guarantee transport however, please contact the Customer Service Centre to discuss your circumstances on 01609 780 780. Our opening hours are Monday-Friday 8am – 5.30pm.

If my child travelled on Home to School Transport prior to Covid 19 must they travel when they return?

Parents should be aware of the Government guidance which recommends people should avoid travel using public transport. We understand parents may not wish their child to travel on council transport at this time and that you are free to make your own arrangements.

So that the Council can assess demand and make appropriate arrangements we require that existing users of Council provided transport who wish to use services from June 1st 2020 register every week.

What time will my child travel?

If you have registered for transport from 1st June 2020 using the link above, required operators will be running vehicles along usual routes with normal pick up and drop off times, unless you have been contacted by the Council to notify you of any changes. However please note that transport will only be arranged if you have registered on our website even if you previously received Home to School Transport.

How will Social distancing/cleanliness be implemented on transport?

Transport operators and passengers should follow the government guidance:

Safer Travel Guidance for Passengers – this provides guidance on face covering, social distancing measures etc.

We will endeavour to arrange transport for pupils who usually travel where they have sufficient notice. However social distancing on school transport is extremely challenging and we cannot guarantee or enforce it. It is important we know who will travel so we can try to ensure sufficient seats to encourage suitable distance between pupils. Where service capacity is limited, priority will be given to pupils who are entitled to free travel under the Home to School Transport policy.

We are also asking parents to ensure that they consider taking their child to school wherever possible as not only is this in line with government guidance, it will also reduce pressure on the school transport network.

Transport Cleaning

Guidance on cleaning in transport settings has been provided by Central Government and appropriate steps should be taken by operators based upon this guidance.

My child lives at 2 addresses where will they be collected from?

If you have registered for transport from June 1st 2020 onwards your child should attend the same pick up point as they would usually be collected from on each day.

What precautions should children take when travelling to school?

Read the latest Government guidance on school transport.

Do children and young people have to wear face coverings on home to school transport?

From 15th June 2020 it is the law that you must wear a face covering when travelling in England on public transport including a bus, coach, tram or train. Where travel with children is necessary, such as to an education setting, consider whether children could walk or cycle, accompanied by a responsible adult or carer, where appropriate. The law requiring passengers to wear face coverings does not apply to children under the age of 11. Face coverings should not be used by children under the age of 3, for safety.

Children, even if they are over 11, are not required to wear face coverings on school transport. School transport is that provided by local authorities, academy trusts or schools for the specific purpose of transporting children to and from their home and school.

You can find more information in the Department for Transport’s safer travel guidance for passengers.

Childcare provision

If parents are looking for alternative childcare provision, please ensure the provision is regulated. All paid childcare involving more than two hours a day should be taken with a provider who is registered, including paid childcare in the child’s own home. You can find more details here.

Free school meals

The government has issued guidance to schools regarding continuing provision of (benefit based) free school meals via meals, food packs or vouchers during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak. It is the school where your child was receiving free school meals that will decide on the method of support.

The free school meal team are unable to offer any assistance or advice regarding the issuing of vouchers or the system schools have in place for providing meals. Any queries or complaints should be directed to the school.

Additional temporary entitlement to free school meals due to Covid 19

During the coronavirus outbreak, there has been a temporarily extension from 21 April until schools fully reopen to free school meals eligibility to include four groups who have no recourse to public funds (NRPF), including: 

  • children of Zambrano carers
  • children of families with no recourse to public funds with a right to remain in the UK on grounds of private and family life under Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights
  • children of families receiving support under section 17 of the Children Act 1989 who are also subject to a no recourse to public funds restriction

The 3 groups above are subject to a maximum household earnings threshold of £7,400 per annum.

  • children of a subset of failed asylum seekers supported under section 4 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999.

This group is not subject to any maximum household earnings threshold.

This extension is temporarily in place due to the current unique circumstances. It covers both children who are attending school and children who are at home.

See guidance for the temporary extension of free school meals eligibility to NRPF groups for more information.

To be eligible for free school meals, the maximum annual household earnings threshold is £7,400 after tax. This equates to £616 per month.

Supporting information can include either a:

  • payslip
  • P60
  • bank statement
  • letter from their bank
  • letter from their employer

Families who are receiving Section 4 support are not able to work, and as such their earnings do not need to be verified.

If you fall in one of these categories and if you are temporarily eligible for free school meals during COVID-19,  please complete this form (docx / 32 KB) and email it to schoolwelfare@northyorks.gov.uk with supporting information. Alternatively, please ask the school to send it in.

Any other applicant should use the standard application form (FMB1) that can be found on the main free school meals page.

Step-parent adoption

Any new enquiries or applications for step-parent or non-agency adoptions cannot be progressed at this time as it would involve non-essential travel and visits to the home. We will update our website when the situation is able to change.

Education appeals

The government published new regulations and guidance on 24 April to allow School Admission Appeals to take place without the need for meetings to be held in person.

The School Appeals team are now contacting all appellants, starting with parents whose children are due to start secondary school in September, and parents appealing for their child to move school mid-year, about the arrangements for their appeal hearings, in line with the new rules. Appellants whose children are due to start primary school in September will be contacted shortly afterwards.

We are sorry for the unavoidable delays to progressing and hearing appeals this year due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Appeal hearings will start to take place again in June and will continue throughout the school summer holidays. There are currently over 300 school admission appeals to be heard for schools across North Yorkshire.

The School Appeals team would like to thank parents very much for the patience and understanding they have shown whilst the appeal process has been delayed.
