Recommendation to Cabinet following public consultation on the proposed change to the definition of a pupil's qualifying school


That Cabinet endorses the following revision to the Home to School Transport   policy:


         The definition of a pupil’s qualifying school is altered to mean either the closest qualifying school to the pupil’s home address, with places available, that provides education appropriate to the age, ability and aptitude of the pupil and takes in account any special educational needs that pupil may have, or the priority area school in which the pupil resides.  This change would be implemented from publication of the Home to School Transport Policy.
