Changes to the Transport Policy for Children and Young People with SEN

New Search

Purpose This consultation is about proposed changes to the Transport Policy for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).


It is proposed that the county council:
- introduces a parental contribution for discretionary Post 16 transport support of 475 per annum with effect from September 2014.
- applies a formulaic increase to future years' concessionary charge that is on the basis of Retail Price Index (RPI) plus 5%.

The proposed changes would ensure that transport provision for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities can continue to be provided in a transparent, supportive and cost-effective way for families.

It is proposed that the changes will be introduced from September 2014.
