Royal Borough of Greenwich home to school travel - Closed
Royal Borough of Greenwich is revising the home to school travel assistance policy. In preparing the revised policy and practice – we have taken note of the DfE statutory Guidance (2014), Local Government Ombudsman’s reports, complaint and appeals, legislation, and the SEND Code of Practice 2015.
There are few changes to the actual policy but we are also clarifying how we make decisions about agreeing to providing assistance and when and how we will provide it.
Home to school Travel Assistance Policy consultation March 2019 - response from Royal Greenwich
We have reviewed all comments and concerns about the proposed implementation of the travel assistance policy and recognize it has raised anxiety amongst some parents.
We want to reassure parents that for those whose children or young people we consider to have the most complex needs, there is unlikely to be any change. Changes for others will be brought in gradually – starting with all new applications for travel assistance, and at each stage, parents likely to be affected will be invited to a meeting to discuss what it means for them and to address any concerns.
There is a report attached that sets out what we will do and when. Please see link to the right of the screen.
Early Years SEN Inclusion Funding Consultation- Closed
The current early years funding system, which has been in place for some time, is out of date and despite changes in other areas of Early Years SEND funding has not been reviewed.
It is therefore vital that we review this to ensure it is fit for purpose and aligned with changes within both the national and local context and responds to the needs of children and families in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
As part of this consultation we would like your feedback to shape the final plan.
