Home to School Transport Appeals

Report of the Executive Director, People Services



The Executive Director, People Services, submitted reports and commented upon two cases where parents had appealed against the administrative decisions made by the Executive Director with regard to the refusal to grant home to school travel bus passes.




The Committee gave consideration to all the supporting information and evidence provided by the pupils’ parents and, arising therefrom, it was:-




RESOLVED: That the cases be not upheld on the grounds that there are no exceptional circumstances demonstrated, and having regard to the Council’s Home to School Transport Policy, the school that the pupils are requesting passes for are not their catchment school/nearest suitable schools (Case Nos.DefBF2 and SD1).




(NOTE:  Case No. DefBD2 had been deferred from the meeting of the Committee which was held on 20th September, 2017 for the Executive Director, People Services, in consultation with the Chair, to make the decision under delegated powers, but instead, the case had been considered again at this meeting, and the decision was made by the Committee).
