Buckinghamshire Council’s consultation on the proposed home to school transport policy for 2021/22 is drawing to its close on 7 December, so it’s the last chance for people to give the council their views.
Any changes made as a result of the consultation would take effect from April 2021 for the next academic year starting in September 2021. Of special note are the proposed options for changing the way transport is arranged for eligible post-16 students with special educational needs or disabilities (SEND)to travel to their school, college or learning provider from September 2021. This applies to eligible SEND students aged 16-18 and students aged 19 who are continuing on a course started before their 19th birthday.

Anita Cranmer, Buckinghamshire Council Cabinet Member for Education & Skills, said: “It’s crucial families can make informed choices about their educational transport so that all students arrive at school ready to learn.
“This consultation will help to shape the new home to school transport policy for the next academic year so I’d ask anyone with an interest in our school transport policy to take a look at the online consultation.
“Whether you have just become aware, or have already been considering taking part, please note that the consultation is closing very soon, on Monday 7 December – we do want to hear your views.”
