School Transport Policy Consultation

Dear Parent Carer,

We are writing to make you aware of two consultations currently being carried out by Dorset County Council that make specific reference to children & young people with Special Educational Needs or Disability (SEND).

The relevant policy documents are attached, and we strongly recommend you take time to read them in full.

The Home to School Policy and Post 16 Transport Policy are not SEND specific so to help you find the relevant sections we have highlighted text in yellow. These are the parts of the policy most likely to affect your child/young person.

Also attached is a shorter easier to read guidance document produced by Dorset County Council. This also outlines the details most relevant in both policies to children & young people with special educational needs or disability.

The consultation began on October 23rd and ends on 4th December.

If you wish to respond you must do so by emailing:
