Important Information: Suffolk County Council Funded School Travel for 2020/2021
As you will be aware Suffolk County Council (SCC) changed its school travel policy from September 2019.
The opt-in process for those pupils who are eligible for SCC funded school travel for the 2020/2021 school year opens on 4 March 2020 with a deadline of 31 May 2020. SCC will be using various communications channels to cascade the opt-in message to parents/families.
- Social media – Facebook and Twitter
- Media – news stories
- Primary School and Secondary School national offer days – emails and letters
- Education Officers who visit schools
- Websites – www.suffolk.gov.uk and www.suffolkonboard.com/optin
- Newsletters – Suffolk Headlines, Governors, Post-16 providers
This is only the second year of the SCC’s new school travel policy, so we need your help to make sure eligible families opt-in by 31 May 2020.
We have prepared some information which helps to explain the School Travel Policy and to communicate this information with families
