‘Transportation shouldn’t be a hindrance’
Boris Johnson said transportation shouldn’t be “a hindrance” for pupils returning to school in September.
He said: “We also have to face the fact that the blockade, children who are out of school like many of them, was a risk to them physically because they weren’t able to exercise, perhaps the way they should.
‘But there has also been pressure on their mental health which is why we are investing an additional £ 8 million to help teachers deal with some of the mental health problems children and young people may experience.
“But the best way to deal with any mental health problem is to take our children to school in September.”
Mr. Johnson added: “Whether your child, whether your pupil is going by bus or bicycle, or train, or car, or on foot, whatever means of transportation your child needs to go to. school, we will do everything possible to help.
“We are investing another £ 40 million to support municipalities and we want to make sure that transport is not a hindrance and it won’t be. Transport should not be an obstacle for children, for pupils, who return to school in September “.
