Oxfordshire County Council is today launching a new consultation on proposals to reduce the amount it spends on home-to-school transport – following a decision in July to look again at the plans.
Under the current policy, some children receive free transport despite attending schools which are not the nearest available to them. In some cases, children receive free transport to their catchment school even though an alternative school exists within walking distance.
This level of provision is more generous than the national statutory level and is not considered sustainable given the on-going pressure on public finances and the need for the council to identify potential savings across all service areas.
