Reminder to have your say on proposed changes to school transport

Don’t forget the council’s consultation on proposed changes to school transport in Bridgend County Borough is still open.

As part of the new proposals, all pupils of statutory school-age will only be eligible for free transport if they live outside of the statutory distances of two miles of a primary school, or three miles of a secondary school. Welsh-medium and faith schools will not be affected.

Legacy ‘sibling’ protection for pupils will be removed along with transport for nursery pupils (excluding those attending their nearest suitable Welsh-medium or faith school) and post-16 transport to all schools and colleges, excluding pupils attending the following schools: Ysgol Gyfun Gymraeg Llangynwyd; Archbishop McGrath Catholic High School; The Bishop of Llandaff Church in Wales High School.

Another proposed change is the offer of a ‘personal transport budget’ to parents or carers of pupils with additional learning needs (ALN). A ‘budget’ of 45p per mile will be offered to provide financial support to parents or carers on an individual basis, giving them the opportunity to arrange their own transport to school for their child if they wish.

Please visit the council’s website to have your say on the future of home-to-school and college transport.

Closing date: 3 July 2024
