Post-16 Transport Policy Statement

Dear Chair, Headteacher,

Re: Consultation upon the Post 16 Transport Policy Statement

The Council has a duty to prepare, consult upon and publish an annual transport policy statement each year specifying the arrangements for the provision of transport or otherwise that the authority considers it necessary to facilitate the attendance of all persons of sixth form age receiving education or training.

The transport policy statement must also specify the arrangements proposed to be made by the governing bodies of schools and further education colleges which may include assistance with transport costs or transport provision. Governing bodies are under a duty to co-operate in giving the local authority any information and other assistance that is reasonably required by the authority to enable them to prepare their statement

We kindly ask that you notify your students and parents in your usual manner that this consultation is underway and post the attached questionnaire on your website and student notice boards. In addition we would ask that you provide us with information on the assistance that may be available to your students regarding transport to school or college so we can include this in the statement.

Kind regards

  • Community

    • Good community links add relevance and interest to students’ work. We have strong business links and work closely with voluntary groups, our local primary schools and other organisations. Our growing partnership with local providers is a real strength.

      We are keen to be ‘community partners’. Students and staff are active members of local focus groups and attend local forums. As the lead secondary school within the Shipley Achieving Success (SAS) partnership we are proactive in our support with young people and their families. Our Extended School provision is wide ranging and offers opportunities to engage in after school and holiday clubs together with a wide range of workshops.

  • Vacancies

    • We are an 11-18 mixed comprehensive school that is extremely popular and oversubscribed.  We moved into our new school building in September 2008 and have outstanding facilities and a state of the art learning environment.

      We are proud of our comprehensive school principles and our daily work is centred on four key values; summarised as together we can make a difference; resilient to change; ambitious to excel and caring for the lives of individuals. We are a school with great aspirations; proud of our history and heritage, yet always looking to the future – celebrating student well-being, high academic standards and achievement for all. Success at school is the result of students, parents/carers and teachers working together.
