 Dear Stakeholder,

 The Learner Travel (Wales) Measure 2008 states that all local authorities have a duty to transport learners to their nearest suitable school if they meet the qualifying distance criteria.

 The Council’s current Home to School Transport Policy was approved in 2018, however since its implementation in September 2019, it has become apparent that there is a need to further review the policy to reduce ambiguity in order to ensure that the policy can be applied consistently.

 On the 9th June 2020, the Council’s Cabinet approved carrying out consultation on the draft policy. The consultation will end on 27th July 2020.

 To respond to the consultation, you can:

 Following the consultation, a Consultation Report will be prepared summarising the issues raised during the consultation period and the Policy will be updated as needed. The Consultation Report and the post-consultation version of the policy will be considered by the Cabinet in September 2020.

 It is intended that the updated policy will be implemented from September 2021. 

 If you require a printed copy of this document, or a copy in a different format, please contact the School Transformation Team on 01597 826277, or e-mail
