Department for Education Consultation on School Transport
The Department for Education is carrying out a consultation about updating the statutory guidance for local authorities on home to school travel and transport.
The consultation runs from now until 31 October. You are encouraged to share more widely with people with an interest in the implications for pupils with SEN, disabilities or medical conditions to submit responses.
School transport generally is clearly of major importance to pupils with SEND. In addition, specific issues touched on in the guidance and the consultation document include:
- Travel training
- Behaviour during travel
- Support for pupils with medical conditions
DfE have asked for your help to ensure that the decisions that will be taken by Ministers following the consultation are informed by consideration of the full implications for pupils with special educational needs, disabilities and medical conditions.
