A consultation on changes to our policy for home to school transport, specifically for those with special educational needs or disabilities.
We have a statutory responsibility to provide travel assistance, from home to school, for eligible children and we are proposing to consult on the discretionary areas of our current transport policy, and how we provide travel assistance.
Recent increases in both the numbers of SEND pupils requiring transport and increases in the distances that they travel, have led to a rise in costs. Based on current trends, this will reach an annual cost of £30m by 2025. The budget for providing home to school transport for pupils with special educational needs or disability is £5m.
