 LOCAL NEWS

Subject: BCC Home to School Transport Consultation Launches
 

Dear Parish colleagues

Today we have launched our consultation on Home to School Transport and we’re looking for communities, schools and parents views on proposed changes to Home to School Transport in Buckinghamshire.

If Parish Councils are able to share this consultation via their websites and newsletters, we would appreciate the support.

 

What changes are we suggesting?

 

Changing our School Transport Policy

Bringing our Policy in line with what we’re legally required to do should save an estimated £0.5 million. 

This means we would only provide free school transport to the nearest secondary school to your home address. The school could be located in Buckinghamshire or in a neighbouring county and could be an Upper, Grammar (for qualified children only) or Comprehensive.

 

Paying to use our Home to School Transport

We know that families like to use and pay for our school transport services when they’re not eligible for the free service.

For the Under 16’s who live in Buckinghamshire, we charge the same whether you are travelling 3 miles or 15 miles. This will be £599 for an annual pass for a 2016/17 academic year. 

We do not make enough money from providing this service to cover its costs.  We are really keen to receive ideas on alternative ways we can provide this service.

 

To find out more and access the survey visit: www.buckscc.gov.uk/schooltransportconsultation

 

We will be promoting this consultation through the media and extensively through social media. It is one survey for any interested resident, family, school or organisation. There is a section at the end to tell us who you are responding on behalf of as well as a ‘free text’ space to tell us any other comments you may wish to make.
