Those of you with children at Backwell School will be aware that once they have finished Year 11 (GCSE’s) school transport is no longer provided.
With much persuasion the Parish Council has negotiated with North Somerset Council a concession whereby Year 12 & 13 students can still use the school bus to get from Kingston Seymour to and from the Market Inn in Yatton from where they can then get a train to Backwell – as all Year 12 & 13 students are now expected to do. This is clearly not as good as a bus all the way but is better than having to get to Yatton under their own steam regardless of the weather.
Details are as follows.
To apply for a seat under the scheme please complete an application form and return it before 14th August of each academic year to allow the application to be processed in time for the start of the academic year. You will need to attach payment in full. Please make cheques payable to North Somerset Council. The Annual Fee per child for 2019/2020 is £190 (please note this fee covers travel between Kingston Seymour and Yatton Station ONLY. All onward or return travel to/from Backwell school is not included)
Application forms and full details can be obtained from firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope this is of use to some of you, if not now in forthcoming years?
Michael Sewell, Chair, Kingston Seymour PC
