Each year local authorities are required to consult young people of sixth form age and their parents as well as other stakeholders on the Post-16 Transport Policy Statement before it is finalised.

The Post-16 Transport Policy Statement outlines the help that might be available through the County Council, schools, colleges and transport operators to help young people of sixth form age and young adult learners aged 19+ who have an Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) to get to school and college. It includes information about:

  • fares and concessions;
  • the Council’s home to school/college transport policy for learners with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND); and
  • contact details for schools and colleges.

You can find out more about the Policy Statement in the 'Documents' box to the right.

The aim of this consultation is to:

Check that the Post-16 Transport Policy Statement and related information is complete, clear and accurate.

We would therefore like to gather views from young people, parents and other interested parties about the draft Policy Statement.
