Following today's judgement from the Royal Courts of Justice, the following statement has been issued by Blake Pain, county council cabinet member for environment and transport:
We welcome today's judgement, which dismissed the Judicial Review on all grounds.
“We were very aware of concerns raised by families, but were satisfied that we have followed proper processes in relation to our new policy for post-16 SEN transport arrangements.
“We’ve already contacted parents to let them know about the ‘pause’ to the implementation of the new policy until September 2020 while we awaited the outcome of the Judicial Review.Person:Blake Pain. cabinet member for environment and transport
"As part of this process we confirmed to most parents what type of transport assistance will be provided and we are working hard to confirm these arrangements ahead of the new academic year
