Rejected petition Increase school transport funding for 8 to 11 years olds in full time education

The Council is trying to reduce funding for 8 year olds and for children under 5 years old. Please sign this petition to keep/improve The Home to School Transport Policy and help us to reduce traffic between villages, parking issues and improve the environment.

More details

The Council is reviewing (cutting back) its home to school/college travel arrangements to ensure they continue to deliver their statutory responsibilities to meet the travel needs of children and young people to access education.

The Council’s decision is in early 2020 on a new Home to School/College Travel and Transport Policy.
