Post 16 transport policy statement 2021-22

Closed 29 Mar 2021

Opened 26 Feb 2021

Overview

Each year local authorities are required to consult young people of sixth form age and their parents as well as other stakeholders on the Post 16 Transport Policy Statement before it is finalised.

The Post-16 Transport Policy Statement outlines the help that might be available through the County Council, schools, colleges and transport operators to help young people of sixth form age and young adult learners aged 19+ who have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) to get to school and college. It includes information about:

  • fares and concessions;
  • the Council’s home to school/college transport policy for learners with SEND; and
  • contact details for colleges and schools with sixth forms.

Why we are consulting

The aim of the consultation is to check that the Policy Statement and related information is complete, clear and accurate. We would like to gather views from young people, parents and other interested parties.

Changes to the 2021/22 transport policy statement relate to dates and anticipated changes to travel costs.  There are no substantial changes to the policy around the help from the Council that is available to young people.

You can leave your comments on page 2 of the survey but you should first read the draft policy document found in the 'related' documents section.
