Peterborough faith school transport PE1

Location: UK » East of England » PE
Sector: Education, Transport

Peterborough City Council withdrew its provision of free transport for children starting at faith schools in September 2010.

The council is now looking to withdraw free transport from all children studying at faith schools, including those who started before September 2010, in order to save £187k per year.

Parents on low incomes will still qualify for support under other provisions within
the council’s transport policy.

The council’s plans are currently out to public consultation along with the remainder of its proposed budget, with responses due by early February 2011.
