I frequently hear stories from parents about issues with transport and as a steering group we are hoping to highlight this matter to the LA. Therefore please can you let me know about any concerns you have so we can share these. Thanks.

A large number of pupils with medical needs do not have cate plans in place ..  the transport team said they did not receive information indicating a child had needs when they received the paperwork from the referral sent by school... 

i think we we need to see this referral form and ask if infact there needs to be a parental form aswell that is used to gather information ( this could be separate to the form to secure transport so as not to give another reason. For delay)

A number of children are in a taxi over an hour to save money !! The child’s needs are not being put first

"Why are there no care plans for children with medical needs on transport? transport is more than a taxi to school, it impacts the whole day!

"When will 'transport' be viewed as more than simply sorting out a taxi? no consideration is given to the impact poor transport arrangements have on children. No thought, no care, no safeguarding.

"there are a huge number of children still having issues with transport 
- issues are not resolved
- calls are not answered
- children are not safe guarded
- companies are not aware of children's disabilities and needs
- no communication from transport re what route / company etc children are on, letters are sent out one day before.

From a Parent at the SEND feedback event - " Stop cutting costs on transport - use one or two companies e.g Merry Hill. Organise the routes properly, don't lose children and have faulty seat belts.
