Councillor Sara Bedford, seconded by Councillors Sarah Nelmes and Ann Shaw to move under Notice duly given as follows

This Council:

  • Believes that school buses are an effective, efficient and environmentally friendly way to transport children.
  • Accepts that parents should pay towards the costs of transport where they are able to do so.
  • Supports the practice of all schools and pupils being treated equally in the provision of and charging for school bus services.
