People Cabinet Member – Minutes – 11 March 2014

126      (55) POST 16 STUDENT TRANSPORT POLICIES – The Director of People submitted a report which sought approval of the council’s post 16 student transport policies.

There were two post 16 student transport policies.  One was for students who had special or medical needs and required extra support to get to their post 16 courses, the other was for students who did not need additional support and could use public transport.

The policies were reviewed and published every year.  This year the report identified that the student contribution would remain unchanged from previous years with a bus pass being £30 and a replacement pass £20.

Resolved – (a) That the post 16 student transport policies appended to the report be approved and maintain the student contribution at £30 and replacement pass cost at £20.

The corresponding report of the following item (Minute 127refers) contains exempt information as defined in Paragraphs 1 and 2 of Part 1 of Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended).

127      (56)  REVIEW OF NORTH LINCOLSHIRE MUSIC SUPPORT SERVICE – The Director of People submitted a report which sought consideration of the functions and priorities of the Music Support Service, proposed organisational changes to effectively meet them, and sought approval to review the Music Support Service.

The Music Review Service had been delivering instrumental music tuition in schools across North Lincolnshire since 1975. Following the Henley Review in 2011, the Government announced the National Music Plan which confirmed the establishment of Music Education Hubs to offer a wider variety of musical activities in schools and in the community.

The North Lincolnshire Music Education Hub was established in 2012 working with a range of partners within North Lincolnshire and across the Yorkshire and Humber region.

A review of the service was required to ensure that more children and young people were engaged in music within schools and the wider community, whilst operating within the grant funding.

Resolved – That Option 2 outlined in the report and detailed in Appendix 1 be approved.

Where there is no report this is because it is exempt, as it contains information which is considered to be of a confidential nature, as detailed in the Local Government (Access to Information) Act.
