Revision of Home to School Transport Policy 2018-19

There is a legal requirement that the County Council publishes a Home to School Transport Policy, in accordance with the Education School Information Regulations 2008 (Regulation 8.)  The regulation requires that local authorities publish all relevant information no later than six weeks before the closing date for secondary school applications which is 31 October each year.


In November 2015, Cabinet agreed to consult on the withdrawal of the current transport subsidy for pupils attending a faith school, where there was a nearer school to their home.  The previously agreed policy has therefore been revised to reflect the decision to remove support for denominational transport.  The report also provides information on the responses to the consultation the Council has undertaken in this respect for the Cabinet to consider.
