The Council’s Home to School Transport Policy for children aged 4 to 16 years has been reviewed and updated in line with Department for Education guidance.
The Policy sets out:
- the general arrangements in respect of home to school travel and transport for children of compulsory school age
- the Council’s statutory and discretionary responsibilities relating to home to school transport
- the eligibility criteria
Please note: the updates to this policy will not result in any changes to transport arrangements currently in place for children of compulsory school age.
A new Post-16 Transport Partnership Policy, which will set out the Council’s approach to transport for eligible young people of sixth form age from home to their educational placement, will be consulted on in early 2019.
