This consultation is now closed - thank you to everyone who took part.
What happens next
The SEND transport consultation is now closed and responses will be published in due course. We will send a formal report to Cabinet outlining the proposed changes to the policies following consultation, with draft policies for approval. In advance of the final policies being published, we will be hosting a Q&A session to share the consultation findings and answer any questions.
What we consulted on
We are proposing to update and revise our home-school transport policy. We are introducing a more detailed account of how decisions are made in the interests of transparency and to ensure our stakeholders are as informed as possible. This will also ensure that there is less confusion and misinformation in the community.
The majority of children and young people who require transport assistance to school will continue to benefit from the existing provision from Transport for London. Specialist assistance will continue to be provided for children and young people with SEND or those whose family circumstances mean that additional support to access education will be required.
