Lancashire School Transport Consultation
14th July 2017
As you may already be aware, Lancashire County Council is consulting on a proposal to end the provision of discretionary denominational transport assistance for pupils who do not attend their nearest school but attend their nearest faith school on faith grounds.
As a result of reductions in Council budgets from September 2011, parents of pupils in these circumstances were required to make a contributory charge. From September 2017, this will be £575 per year per child. The new proposals will mean that families will face a further increase in the annual charge, possibly as high as £800 per pupil from 2018.
