Home to School/College Travel and Transport Policy Consultation

30th September 2019

Surrey County Council are inviting people to provide their thoughts and opinions on proposed changes to the Home to School/College Travel and Transport Policy.

The Council is reviewing its home to school/college travel arrangements to ensure they continue to deliver their statutory responsibilities to meet the travel needs of children and young people, particularly those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND), to access education. They are also seeking to improve outcomes for children and young people by promoting independence and preparation for adulthood.

The full set of proposals is available here.

Your feedback will be used to inform the Council’s decision in early 2020 on a new Home to School/College Travel and Transport Policy.

The survey should take around 20 minutes to complete. The closing date for this consultation is midnight 15 December 2019.

Eight Public Engagement Events will also be held as part of this consultation. At these events representatives of the Council will talk through the detail of the consultation, whilst also listening and responding to feedback and questions to those in attendance. Anyone with an interest in the delivery of home to school/college travel and transport is encouraged to attend. Details of confirmed events are listed below:
