Pro bono students major research report concerning councils’ free ‘Home to School Transport’ Policies

A study by students at the School of Law, led by Sorcha McCormack and Professor Luke Clements, has found very serious failings in the information provided by English councils’ websites concerning the right of disabled children to free home to school transport.

The research entitled 'Local Authority Home to School On-line Transport Policies: Accessibility and Accuracy' recommends that the Secretary of State uses her ‘default powers’ to require councils to update and improve the information they provide to families.
