March 9, 2022
Published by Dudley CVS

Dudley Council is inviting people to have their say on proposed amends to some of its school transport policy.

The local authority is reviewing how children under statutory school age and those entering further education settings with SEND will receive support with education transport.

The proposals will bring the policy into line with national recommendations and does not affect children and young people without SEND or those of statutory school age.

Emphasis is being placed on offering transport training programmes to help those aged 16 and over gain the confidence and skills needed to travel independently, as they are supported into adulthood.

The consultation process will welcome feedback from young people, parents, carers and educational settings over the next 90 days, with a mixture of online sessions and face to face meetings set to take place across the borough over the course of the consultation period.

People can read the consultation document and are invited to take part in the consultation online.

Printed versions are available in five different languages and a read easy format. These can be collected from the Council House, Priory Road, DY1 1HF or by calling 01384 814200.
