This public consultation is being undertaken to gather views about proposed changes to the delivery of Home to School Transport Services for children and young people, including those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
These changes may affect pupils of all ages, attending both mainstream and specialist schools. The proposed changes reflect best practice by other local authorities and would provide opportunities for mixing of pupils across different age groups, and those in mainstream and specialist settings, as well increasing the use of safe, co-ordinated pick-up and drop-off points for pupils with SEND.
There are no changes proposed in how we decide if children are eligible for transport but these proposed changes to the service may impact on transport from September 2022.
We would encourage you to take part in this online consultation. An Information Pack setting out the proposal and background, together with the consultation Response Form, can be found on the consultation webpage: https://www.hants.gov.uk/aboutthecouncil/haveyoursay/consultations.
