6Motion referred to the Education, Children and Young People Executive under Standing Order 31
The following motion was referred to the Education, Children and Young People Executive from the meeting of Falkirk Council on 4 December 2019.

Proposed by Councillor Kerr

School Transport

Council:-

(1) notes the current position regarding school transport for children with more than one residence as set out in the Transport Policy - Operational Guidance;

(2) notes that the current policy unfairly impacts children whose parents live separately and the child lives with both parents as only one pass is issued on a specified route and therefore only allows travel to one parent's residence; and

(3) instructs the Director of Children's Services to report to the next meeting of Council with:-

i) options to provide school transport to children with more than one residence, where each residence meets the distance entitlement, and

ii) Information on any cost implications arising therefrom.
