Bus Strike Update Week Commencing Monday 16 October – 873 Afternoon Service

Further to our message earlier this week, and Mr Fowler’s note in the Parent Bulletin, we have just been advised by Nexus that Go North East will be unable to guarantee the scholars’ services for a number of schools from Monday 16 October 2023 until Friday 20 October 2023.¬†¬†Unfortunately, the 873 afternoon only service from Lord Lawson is one of those affected.

We ask that parents and carers of students who use the 873 service make arrangements to ensure their children have alternative transport home next week.

As Mr Fowler has already asked in his letter in the Parent Bulletin, we appeal to any parent or carer who may be collecting their children and has space in their car to offer transport to other Lord Lawson students who may live in your neighbourhood. Your child may know someone who has difficulty getting to or from school next week, and this added complication will have an impact on even more students.
