Religion-based school transport under microscope

Have your say

The county council is asking for residents’ views on a proposal to change the way it supports transport to schools provided on the basis of religion or belief.

Currently the council provides free transport to just over 800 pupils for reasons of religion or belief at a cost of almost £870,000 a year.

If the council decides to make a change, it will be introduced from September 2015, and only for pupils starting in a new school from that date.
