SEND home school transport consultation

This consultation is now closed - thank you to everyone who took part.

What happens next

The SEND transport consultation is now closed. The report for this consultation has now been published. 

Read the consultation report in the cabinet minutes (item 63).

We hosted an online parental briefing before the final policies were published. This was to provide an opportunity to talk through the consultation findings and answer any questions.

The discussion took place on Tuesday 22 November 2022 and was hosted by the Head of Service, Integrated SEND, and the SEND Transport Manager.

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.

Consultation documents

Following the consultation, the new policies have been agreed and can be found in the Apply for Transport section.
