WREXHAM families can have their say on an all-Wales Travel Behaviour Code, aimed at promoting positive behaviour on education travel.
It covers all forms of transport for children and young people aged five-19 and focuses on the responsibilities, safety and rights of those travelling from home to their place of education.
The Deputy First Minister and Minister for Economy and Transport, Ieuan Wyn Jones, said the new code, which is out for consultation, was a vital element of the Learner Travel Measure, introduced last year to improve the safety and efficiency of education travel.
“The Code promotes safe travel for all learners, by setting out the standards of behaviour expected,” he said.
“Our approach is to encourage schools and local authorities to work proactively with learners, their parents and the community to promote positive behaviour.”
It allows local authorities and schools to take action when a young person misbehaves, ranging from a warning, to withdrawing an entitlement to travel and even exclusion.
Also published for consultation is guidance for schools, operators and local authorities on how to enforce the procedures.
The consultation runs until July 31. Visit www.wales.gov.uk/consultations/ transport/travelbehaviourcode and www.wales.gov.uk/consultations/ transport/statutoryguidance.
