Notification received from Mark Gopwood CBE, Managing Director, Great Western Railway
Following the Prime Minister’s confirmation this afternoon that all schools and colleges will return on Monday 8 March, I wanted to reassure you all our key school and college services will be operating.
Many are already running, but where they are not, we will have the reinstated in time to support students, pupils and returning staff.
Over the last year, we have worked closely with colleges and schools as well as our colleagues on mapping these services, and I am grateful to them for their help in this vital piece of work. If there are any services that you would like to specifically check are included, do let me know and we will check for you.
As restrictions ease over the course of the coming months and more passengers return to the railway, we will continue to restore services to our timetable. We will of course keep you updated on our plans but should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
