We are working with the Department for Transport to understand the impact travel disruption may have on schools following the end of the transition period. We are working closely with stakeholders, including Kent County Council, to support their planning for any potential disruption and ensure contingency plans are in place. Schools should remain open wherever it is possible and safe to do so.
