Context....DCC will no longer guarantee a place on the free school bus to Purbeck School, in direct contravention of the undertaking they gave when the abolished our 2 secondary schools in 1974. The six formers will now have to find £400 each to get to this poorly performing instution. swanage families are being effectively taxed for having children! In addition all children (and from next year that means 11yr olds too) will have to produce a pass or be refused travel. fine for most kids most of the time but we all know how chaotic some kids and families can be. and we all forget to put stuff in our bags...how mny kids will be roaming swanage every morning when that rule is enforced...but if you live in Whareham where you don't have to pay £400 for the privilide you can just stroll in to scholl as usual. DCC just doesn't give a **** about Swanage kids or any kids come to that. Swanage can become a retirement and second home haven for all they care.
