School Transport

Home to School Transport

The Transport Team has the responsibility for the Procurement and Management of Home to School transport for around 4,000 students.

The majority of these students travel on the dedicated Vectis Blue contracted Home to School bus and coach services operated by Southern Vectis. Whilst a small number travel by the network of public bus services or by taxi due to their needs or geographical location.

For contracted school bus services operating to Medina House and St Georges Special Schools, specialist safety seating is available and highly trained passenger escorts travel to meet with the individual student’s needs.

All drivers and passenger escorts allocated to contracted school transport services are required to be in possession of a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check or an enhanced Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) disclosure.
