Cornwall: Possible Changes To School Transport
£12 million is spent a year in Cornwall on home to school transport, with around 12 thousand children and young people being transported each school day.
But because of extreme budget pressures the council says it needs to reconsider who gets free lifts.
The Council is consulting on proposed changes to how home to school transport is provided and want to hear from anyone who is interested in or uses home to school transport.
If the proposed changes are approved they will come into effect from September 2014.
The consultation on home to school transport, which closes on Friday 28 February 2014, involves:
- eligibility for transport free of charge
- transport for which the parent/carer makes a financial contribution
- provision for children with special educational needs and other individual needs, including medical and health needs.
The Council would like to hear the views of anyone with an interest in the Home to School Transport Policy, especially:
- Schools and colleges
- Partner agencies (e.g. Health) • The Voluntary Sector
- Town and parish councils
