Independent review of home to school transport - report 2014

In December 2013, Minister of Education, John O’Dowd MLA, appointed an independent panel, chaired by Dr Sian Thornthwaite, to review the Home to School Transport policy which determines eligibility for transport assistance.

The panel was asked to develop recommendations with the aim of ensuring that a revised Home to School Transport policy was fit for purpose, sufficiently targeted pupils’ needs and was consistent with, and supported, Departmental policy objectives.

The Review panels final report and recommendations was published in June 2015.
