I agree with you Alex, the wording is very vague and I thought it was probably started in the Grantham area from some of the names on the list - though we are some distance away and I don't really know much about the range of schools there. And you're right there are some very odd transport arrangements in Lincs already.
Plenty of parents fund the transport to alternative schools of their choice - which I think is right as if you campaign for free transport to grammars that would be unfair to the 75% who fail to gain a place at a GS. Why should they not be entitled to free transport to a school their parents believe is more suitable for their child's needs.
75% of Lincs have the choice.
What does this refer to? the choice of more than 1 school, secondary school or just a GS?
We have more than 850 signatures supporting the campaign to offer "choices" rather than the one designated secondary school.
That does not surprise me at all. But it doesn't persuade me this is fair. I believe if you choose to send your child to any school out of area when there is a closer school that can meet their needs, then the parent has to be responsible for transport. Also this is not perculiar to Lincs - my friends in London have to pay the transport to their preferred school.
