KCC: Have Your Say on Home to School and Post 16 Transport for Mainstream and SEND Pupils

Kent County Council are currently consulting on:

  • a Home to School Transport Policy for children and young people aged 4 to 16 to come into effect from the 2024-25 academic year, and
  • Post 16 Transport Policy Statements for 2023-24 and 2024-25 academic years.


The Home to School Transport Policy brings together information on how procedures work making it clearer for parents and carers when securing transport for their children.


For post-16 students, no changes are planned for 2023-24, but KCC is required by the Department for Education to consult each year, regardless of any changes, to ensure the Policy provides a full picture of the available transport and support.


The Post 16 Statement for 2024-25, which includes support for 19+ learners with an Education, Health and Care Plan proposes a number of changes and they want parents and students to be able to consider these and tell them their views.
