School Transport Risk Assessments and Risk Management

We're waiting for Wayne Pearsall to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear Warwickshire County Council,

Your LEA provides school transport to students.

Please provide all risk assessments conducted and information relating to such for risks when children get on a school bus.

What policies are officially in place for transport of children to/from the school to the transport, and too/from the transport to home.

What arrangements have been made with schools for school transport provisions.

Please provide risk assessments which you have conducted which make you feel that it is suitable for a yr2 (six year old) to get onto a school bus by way of school transport provision.

Yours faithfully,

Wayne Pearsall

Dear Warwickshire County Council,

reference: 1801728

Andrew Stokes informs me that a formal response has been prepared and sent. I haven't received it.

As he claims it's been sent can you therefore resend this response. You will no doubt be aware that whilst the foia imposes a 20 day time limit this is to be seen as an endstop and information should be sent promptly...

Yours sincerely,

Wayne Pearsall

Dear Warwickshire County Council,

'Schools are informed well in advance of the introduction or revision of all transport services which convey their pupils. Any plans to make substantial changes to services are discussed at length with schools prior to changes taking place.'

So no risk assessment is conducted when you decide to cancel a taxi for young kids and issue bus passes?

Who completed the attached risk assessment. Why no signature? Who conducted it and when? Have you redacted info? If so why?

Please supply all information from discussions with Newbold and Tredington in relation to implementation of Service 152.

I'm told that this service was arranged back as early as June possibly prior.

Yours sincerely,

Wayne Pearsall

Dear Warwickshire County Council,

1878728

Ensure you look into my twist under the foia terms also. I'm less interested in the environmental issues than the safety and wellbeing of children which are transported.

Environmental issues are second to the la statutory and legislative obligations to protect and promote the safety and well being of children within the area.

Yours sincerely,

Wayne Pearsall

Dear Mr Pearsall
 
Freedom of Information Act 2000
 
With reference to your questions received by us on 17/10/2016.

So no risk assessment is conducted when you decide to cancel a taxi for
young kids and issue bus passes? 

Who completed the attached risk assessment. Why no signature? Who
conducted it and when? Have you redacted info? If so why? 

Please see our response;

1. We do not carry out a specific risk assessment when a pupil is
transferred from a taxi to a bus. However, all circumstances are
considered including location of school, availability of existing
transport, boarding and alighting arrangements, and cost effectiveness. 
 
2. This is a generic risk assessment. We do not carry out risk assessments
for every home to school transport service operating in the county. This
was reviewed in February 2015 in by the Transport Operations Group with
input from Health and Safety. 
 
If you would like an internal review, as per the original instructions in
your response letter, please let us know.

Kind regards

Dear Warwickshire County Council,

You say no information is being held by the council however you have referred to telephone consultations with Newbold and Tredington there are some form of notes relating to these conversations as you was able to refer to the conversations
Please supply all notes or other material held in relation to these conversations or consultations as you were legally obliged to consult under statutory obligations there should surely be some written consultation paper work
Yours sincerely,

Wayne Pearsall
