A statement on discretionary bus services.

Cllr Simon Dudley, leader of the council, said: “We are committed to doing what we can to help pupils get to school safely and on time and are continually reviewing our options to find the best ways to make this happen.

"Cllr Natasha Airey, as cabinet member for children’s services, and I have been looking at the discretionary eligibility for pupils in Year 7 to 11 living in Holyport village who attend school in Cox Green.

“We have decided to reinstate this before the 2017/18 academic year begins and will be contacting families who have already enquired about this route.”
