Home to School Transport

We have been contacted by FACT Bucks, the Parent Carer Forum in Buckinghamshire that represents the families of children with special needs.

Buckinghamshire County Council (BCC) launched a consultation last week on changes to the county Home to School Transport Policy.  These proposed changes include the introduction of a charge for most home to school transport for young people aged between 16 and 19 with an EHC plan. 

This will be a matter of significant concern not only for parents of children already in that age bracket, but also for all families of children at secondary special schools who are looking forward to their post 16 options. 

The sums involved, up to £1,111 per year, are considerable.

 

We would encourage you to have your say by completing the on-line questionnaires
