  • Close the Loophole: Post-16 school transport survey results 2020

    Despite the requirement for all 16-18 year olds to participate in education or training, once a young person ceases to be of compulsory school age (5-15) there is no direct entitlement to free home-to-school transport, even if they were previously eligible. The government’s response to this is that discretionary funds are available to young people to help with the costs of transport when they turn 16. We wanted to find out more about this and the impact of the loophole in the law. We ran an online survey in October and November 2019. There were a total of 1,856 responses from parents overall and 525 responses from parents with children aged 16-18. Thanks to SEND Action and the Close the Loop parent campaign group for helping us design and share the survey.
