Post 16 Transport Statement 2018-2019

Closed 31 May 2018

Opened 30 Apr 2018

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 Statement before it is finalised.

Why We Are Consulting

The County Council's current policy offers help with transport costs to young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) attending their nearest school/college. Assistance is given in only the most exceptional circumstances and only where families are unable to provide their own travel solution.

In line with statutory requirements, the County Council is now consulting on the policy statement for the 2018/19 academic year. The changes from the current policy are minimal with changes to dates and prices of travel costs. Comments are welcomed on any aspect of the proposed policy statement (see the 'Related' document below).

Please note that any travel assistance for Post 16 learners is discretionary and could be changed in the future subject to consultation
