What you need to know:

  • Under the new framework, transport providers will be working to a new specification with the safety of children as a priority. Contracts will, where possible, be set up for 2-3 years as a minimum to help build relationships and keep a level of consistency we believe is important for your children.
  • If your child is aged 5-16 (compulsory school age) or is an adult aged 19+ your transport provider may change after the Easter holidays.
    •  If there are changes to your transport provider, we will work to minimise disruption. We will make sure that you and your child are able to meet the new provider to discuss arrangements, including pick up times, before the start of the summer term.
    • We will write to you with more information in March when we’ll let you know if your transport provider will be changing and when you will be able to meet the new provider.
  • If your child is aged 16-18 (sixth form age) there will not be changes to their transport after the Easter holidays as a result of this framework. Changes for this group of pupils will take place over the summer holidays with new arrangements to begin in September 2024. We will write to you separately about this.

We appreciate that any potential change in your child’s transport will be concerning. We will do all we can to minimise disruption and will make sure you are kept fully up to date. We are confident that the new framework will improve the service that we deliver to you. Further information will be provided on the council’s local offer website: If you have any concerns or questions, please contact us on 0121 303 4955.
