Home to school transport: renewal of Hambleton/Scarborough area services

The Council’s Integrated Passenger Transport Team is responsible for arranging home to school and public transport services throughout the county.

We have an established programme to review contracts for transport services and they are renewed by tender through a four year rolling programme. I am writing to let you know that a contract renewal programme is being undertaken in your area during 2017 for implementation in April 2018. All taxi and bus routes will be renewed and new contracts implemented as necessary.

Route scheduling is now underway and I am writing to advise that this may mean a change to operator, route and timings of your transport from April 2018. We are hoping to minimise change as much as possible but where we propose a significant change to a service we will notify you separately.

Should you wish to make any comments concerning the renewal of contracts please e mail me at schooltransport.services@northyorks.gov.uk

Yours Sincerely
Nicky Moseley
School Transport Officer

Poetry competition success

One of our Year 11 students, Holly Duncan, was longlisted for one of the country’s most prestigious poetry competitions, the Tower Poetry competition, which is run by the University of Oxford. The competition receives 11,000 entries from almost 2,250 schools and this year students between 16-18 years of age were challenged to write a poem on the theme of ‘Stone’. Although Holly did not win a prize, the organisers wrote to us to pass on their praise, saying that she had done very well indeed. Her name, and CCW’s, are featured on the Tower Poetry website: http://www.towerpoetry.org.uk/competitions/previous-competitions/2017-stone/

Holly’s poem

Stacks

minute stone houses gathered as a cluster
towards the sea they looked.
outwards and onwards gazed out over the sea,
the harsh north wind blowing a gale against the community
as the spit of the rain charged towards them.
grainy, weathered rocks piled up in stacks.
a sign of burial and respect.
the huddle of folk chilled to the bone where the
memorial takes place.
one solitary soul stood along the edge of the cliff.
tiny pebbles crunched under foot,
under the layers of sediment,
under the layers of earth.
their heart as cold as the wind coming towards them,
their heart practically the stone in which their houses were built,
their heart as if it were the rocks in the stacks.

College Equestrian Team

Caedmon College won the area show jumping competition and qualified to represent North Yorkshire at the National Schools Equestrian Association Showjumping County Championships at Bury Farm Equestrian Village.

Students who competed at the Championships were Bethany Clarkson, Rosie Barber, Tilly Adamski, Issy Hogarth and Abigail Parkes.

All five riders rode and conducted themselves incredibly well and with a smile, their horses looked immaculate and smart in their new school saddle pads kindly donated by Parkol Marina. Saturday warm ups went well with three riders, Issy Hogarth, Tilly Adamski and Rosie Barber, getting two double clears and placed highly out of lots of entries.

On Sunday the team were just piped out of eighth place meaning we were ninth out of 30 teams from all the county’s in England. This was an excellent achievement for the 90cm team which was Bethany Clarkson, Issy Hogarth, Tilly Adamski and Rosie Barber. In the 1m round the team tried so hard and still smiled. Bethany Clarkson jumped a fantastic double clear, with Abigail Parkes, Rosie Barbour and Issy Hogarth in the team.

Many thanks to Mrs Clarkson who is our parent team manager and to Alison Wilson who is our team trainer and to all family members for the incredible support.

Travel arrangements for the afternoon of Friday 28 April

We have been advised by North Yorkshire County Council that on Friday, the roads around Sleights, Ugthorpe and Goathland will be closing earlier than Whitby town centre for the Tour De Yorkshire cycle race.  Please could all students who hold passes for the 307s, 308s and 318s transport make their way to their usual home-time bus stop ready to be picked up straight after lunch.

Caedmon College students who normally catch the train home at 4.00pm will continue to do so on Friday. The feeder transport provided to students from the various train stations will also continue as normal on Friday.  Train students should not make any arrangements with the drivers to leave earlier, this will be classed as truanting.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any further queries.

Yours sincerely

Post 16 Transport Information 2017/18

 

 

 

Are you considering going onto further education at your nearest sixth form or college in September 2017?

If you are, and you require transport assistance to get there, please read the following to see if you may be entitled to assistance through the Local Authority.

Am I eligible for post 16 transport assistance?

  • will you be over 16 and under 19 on 1 September 2017 and live in North Yorkshire?
  • will you be attending a full time further education course?
  • will you be attending the nearest sixth form or college to your home address or be attending the secondary school that is recognised as the catchment school for your home address?
  • is the above school or college more than three miles from your home address by the nearest walked route?
  • is the school/college the nearest establishment offering a course that the Authority considers suitable to a student’s career choice, or that is a pre-requisite for entry onto higher education?

What if I want to study A-levels or a vocational course which is not offered near to my home address?

If you attend a school/college that is not the nearest or the catchment school/college to your home address you will not be entitled to assistance with transport from NYCC and you will have to make your own arrangements and finance the full cost of your travel.

An exception may be made if it is the nearest establishment offering one or more A-levels, or a vocational area, that is a pre-requisite for entry into your chosen degree course or career path.

We ask for this information on the application form and we will look at your combination of subjects and refer to the UCAS website for guidance. Only when the combination is essential will we approve assistance.

What if I have special educational needs?

Applications for students with an Education and Health Care Plan will be considered on an individual basis by an Assessment and Review Officer.

How much does transport assistance cost and how can I pay?

The contribution for 2017/18 is £490.00. Students whose families are on low income and can provide evidence of a means-tested benefit, maybe entitled to a 50% reduction. Please see our website for information on qualifying benefits.

You can pay in full or by 9 monthly direct debit instalments, cheque or credit card.

There is no charge for students with an Education Health Care Plan, students living on their own on Income Support in their own right, students who are Looked After by NYCC and students who are registered young carers (proof will be required).

Do I have to stay on at school and what is ‘raising the participation age’ (RPA)?

The Government has changed the law so that all young people are required to continue in education or training until the end of the academic year in which they turn 18.

Raising the participation age is not the same as raising the school leaving age and does not mean that you have to stay on at school. It does mean that you will need to continue to study or train ie:

  • study full time in school, college or with a training provider
  • full time work or volunteering combined with part time study or training
  • an apprenticeship.

Although the Government has introduced the RPA, they have not given Local Authorities any additional funding for home to school transport. As it is not compulsory for you to stay on at school, students are expected to pay towards post-16 transport assistance.

Will this be the cheapest option for me?

Depending on where you live, this may not be the most cost effective means of getting to school or college for you. Some students may be able to arrange their own transport, but this is something you need to explore yourself.

Can I choose how I travel?

No. The Authority will determine the type of transport which is the most cost effective means of getting to school or college. This is normally at the beginning and end of a school/college day. Additional transport will not be arranged if your course starts later in the morning or earlier in the afternoon. Transport will be arranged from the nearest pick up from your home address which maybe some distance away.

If there is no transport available you may be offered an allowance instead.

The college I am going to attend have said they will pay for me?

If you apply to NYCC you will still need to provide a form of payment until we have assessed your application form. If you are entitled to assistance with us, once the college have confirmed that they will cover the cost, your bank details will be deleted from our system. If you are not entitled to assistance with us, you will need to approach the college direct to see if they can offer any additional support.

What if my circumstances change or I decide to leave?

You must notify us as soon as possible if your circumstances change as we will need to reassess your application. If you leave school/college or no longer need your bus pass, you must return any permit issued to you as soon as possible. You will remain liable for the cost of the pass until it is received by us. It is recommended that you return it by recorded delivery so you obtain proof of postage to the Jesmond House address below.

You are unable to cancel your assistance after the 1 April (due to transport services being contracted for the full academic year).

If you are not awarded transport assistance can I appeal?

Yes, we offer a 2 stage appeal process. You can challenge the decision of the Local Authority to refuse to provide assistance with transport.

You will need to specify why you are challenging the decision and you can provide any details of any special circumstances we need to know about. The information provided will be reviewed by a senior officer and you will be notified of the decision.

If it is not granted, you have 20 days to make a written request, by submitting an appeal form, asking for your case to be considered by appeal panel. The panel is made up of 3 County Councillors and you are welcome to attend this hearing to put forward your case. You will be notified in writing of the outcome of this appeal.

How do I apply?

You can apply on line and arrange to pay by direct debit through the following link www.northyorks.gov.uk/post16transport from the end of May. Please apply by 31 July 2017. We cannot guarantee transport will be in place for the start of the term if you apply after this date.

Payment will only be applied, reduced or waived once we have assessed that you are entitled to assistance with transport. If you are unable to apply online please email post16@northyorks.gov.uk for an application or see contact details below. Please note we are unable to assess eligibility over the phone.

Do have to renew my transport assistance each year?

Yes you will need to reapply each year through the following link www.northyorks.gov.uk/post16transport

Who can I contact or where can I get more information?
