The challenges of school and special needs transport are largely unrecognised.

This brand new publication from acknowledged school transport expert Sian Thornthwaite, comes at a time when increased pressure on public sector finance, greater entitlements to school transport and extensive changes in education are going to place school transport under the spotlight as never before. Its contents include:

  • The school journey – who is responsible for what 
  • Local authority functions, policies, responsibilities and practices 
  • Walking distances and entitlement to free travel 
  • Quality of service and duty of care 
  • Journey safety, emergencies and control of pupils 
  • Setting policies – quality and quantity 
  • Budgeting and financial management 
  • Planning and procurement 
  • Special Needs Transport 
  • 14-19 transport and concessionary fares 
  • Section 52 returns 
  • Every Child Matters Outcomes Framework

This book provides an indispensable reference for all those responsible for the provision, procurement and delivery of school and special needs transport.
