Free Discretionary Transport to Tadcaster Grammar School
Purpose of Report: The Executive Member for Children and Young People is asked to approve the process to commence consultation for phased removal of free discretionary transport to Tadcaster Grammar School to achieve previously agreed savings. This concerns legacy provision of free transport to a non-York school and does not affect special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) eligibility or pupils currently in receipt of the service. This ensures the Elected Member is sighted on the process being used and that it is consistent with the removal of other areas of free discretionary transport carried out previously.
The Council aims to give the same 28 days’ clear notice of non-key decisions as it does for key decisions, but in exceptional circumstances this may not be possible. It has not been possible to give 28 clear days’ notice of the intention to make this decision due to a slight delay in clearing internal governance.
This item has been withdrawn at this time as the Monitoring Officer advises that the consultation period would need to be curtailed for the election period.
