Local Authorities are obliged to periodically offer for tender all of its contracted services.  Over the past few weeks, the Council has tendered its entire public bus and school bus service network.  To do so at this time of year (1) allows school and public transport to be tendered simultaneously to achieve best integration and utilisation of vehicles and (2) allows routes to ‘bed-in’ before the September promotions.  Inevitably, the tender process has led to some changes to the routes and the bus companies involved.  I attach an updated list of the passenger loadings for all services to your school but can advise that Liskeard will see 5 changes:
 

The following information is to give advice and information on the recently banned Facebook drinking game 'NekNominate.'

The game, believed to have originated in Australia, involves posting a video of someone drinking alcohol in an extreme manner and then nominating others to do the same within 24 hours. They use the #neknominate hashtag and tag their friend in the video.

You will recall previously that we were reviewing our approach to the provision of the late buses and our need to ensure that the £15,000 we were paying for them represented the best use of school funds. We reduced the bus routes to the most popular ones and reduced the cost to £6,000. We then sold tickets at £1 a journey to recover some of the cost.

Cornwall Council is consulting on proposed changes to the Home to School Transport Policy from September 2014.

The consultation, which closes on Friday 28 February 2014, involves:

  • Eligibility for transport free of charge
  • Transport for which the parent/carer makes a financial contribution
  • Provision for children with special educational needs and other individual needs, including medical and health needs
