Home to School Transport consultation

On Tuesday 10 June 2014, the Isle of Wight Council’s Executive agreed that a consultation should be carried out on possible changes to the council’s Home to School Transport Policy. The council is reviewing its transport policy following the opening of the Island Free School in September 2014 and the removal of priority areas for Island secondary schools. In addition, the council is facing huge financial challenges given the reduction in government funding and must consider the discretionary services it provides and look at alternative ways of delivering services. It is also good practice to review the Home to School Transport arrangements regularly to ensure that they provide the most cost effective service. Any changes will take effect from September 2015.

There will be a five week consultation period which will end on 23 July 2014. You may visit County Hall or the libraries to view and respond to this consultation online if you do not have internet access.
