STUPID RULING, Some Delabole School Children being made to walk to Camelford for Schooling
0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!
Government rulings state that children over 11, and living closer than 3 miles from their school will not be issued free bus passes. ( exclusions apply, SEN etc). Cornwall Council has applied this legislation to the letter.
However, DELABOLE is different. The route suggested by Cornwall Council is down right dangerous, mostly along 60mph road, with NO pavements.
21 children next year will be affected, the route is along an unclassified road, with NO STREET LIGHTING, LITTLE PHONE SIGNAL, NO PAVEMENT.
The children will have to leave home at 7.00 to get to school for their 8.20 start, they will not be 'school ready', they may well be wet, cold, or at the other end of the spectrum, suffering from heat exhaustion.
Concessionary passes have been offered at a cost of over £5000 p.a. for the group, but this will not GUARANTEE them an place on the bus!!
Parents have already had their appeals turned down by CORNWALL COUNCIL, yet an INDEPENDENT assessment, carried out at the expense of the PARISH COUNCIL, has deemed the route UNFIT.
Please sign this petition to get CORNWALL COUNCIL, to overturn their STUPID decision.
Cornwall Council, if you think 'SAFETY' OF OUR LOCAL CHILDREN IS EXPENSIVE, TRY 'ACCIDENT' !!
