Home to school transport can be a major factor for parents and carers when choosing a school. This article sets out in brief the Local Authority’s (LA) responsibilities and includes references to the law, LA policy, government guidelines and other publications.
Once a transport support eligibility is identified the council has a responsibility to follow established best practice in provision of support in the most appropriate and cost effective way.
Outlined below are the methods available to residents of the East Riding of Yorkshire:
It is hoped the transport arrangements in place are working well, but in the event of any concerns arising, parents and carers are encouraged to approach the council at the earliest opportunity to allow us to address any concerns and make adjustments where deemed necessary.
The council wants to work together with parent and carers to reach an amicable solution, and working together to reach a solution will hopefully minimise any unnecessary stress to families and their children.
To discuss any concerns please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
