We are proposing changes to the transport policy for post-statutory school-age children and young people with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) for the start of the 2023/24 academic year.
This means that every post-statutory school-age child and young person will be assessed under the new policy when attending school or college from September 2023.
We have produced a draft policy regarding the Council’s proposed travel assistance arrangements. We are consulting on this policy and would welcome your views on it as part of the consultation.

A decision will be made by the Council’s Executive, on whether to implement a new policy shortly afterwards.
Everyone who has taken part in this consultation will be kept informed. Key stakeholders will be written to once a final decision has been made
