Harris Academy Transport Sub Group

This afternoon, along with my ward colleagues, Mr Laidlaw (Depute Head Teacher at Harris Academy) and Dundee City Council transportation officers, I took part in the latest meeting of the Harris Academy Transport Sub Group.

The meeting is a sub-group of the Project Board overseeing the Harris New Build Project and looks specifically at the school transport issues.

What is pleasing is that many of the issues about transport for West End-domiciled pupils have been tackled and bus operations are working well.    However, if any parent/guardian has any concerns about the bus arrangements, do please contact me at home on 459378.    

We discussed arrangements for new S1 pupils coming to the school in August for the first time from feeder primary schools, to ensure full information about transport is given to parents and guardians in advance of the new school year, and also discussed progress towards having travel entitlement added to pupils' national entitlement cards.
