Time for our Family Voice Autumn Survey on Home to School Transport!

Last year all of our Home to School Transport Survey recommendations were endorsed by the Children, Families, Lifelong Learning and Culture Select Committee. The committee enthusiastically welcomed our report and one of their recommendations was that this survey be repeated again this year to track progress. The findings of this survey will be presented to the Select Committee later this year.

As an example of positive change, our report recommended that parents taking up travel allowance are reimbursed for all 4 legs of the school journey rather than only when the child/young person is in the car. This change came into force in January 2023.

This survey is a great opportunity to assess what progress has been made on the other recommendations and determine whether they have been implemented consistently, along with what further work needs to be done to improve outcomes for families.

So, if you use Home to School Travel Assistance of any form, please do complete our survey – positive experiences are just as important to evidence as negative.

In the second year of this survey it’s more important than ever to get as many responses as possible so please do spread the word to other parents and your social media contacts. Here is a link to the survey Transport Survey Link
