Could you help with school transport appeals?

25 February 2021

We’re looking for panel members to adjudicate at school transport appeals.


In certain circumstances, parents can apply to us for help with school transport such as a free bus pass. If this application is rejected, parents have a right to appeal.

Appeals don’t usually last longer than two hours and you’ll need to read the appeal papers before the hearing and attend a short pre-briefing with the clerk before the start of the appeal. Appeals are currently being held virtually on Microsoft Teams.

Places on the panel are available to employees on grade 10 or above and you will need your line manager’s approval. Full training will be given. To ensure impartiality we are unable to accept volunteers from children’s services.
