Learner Travel (Wales) Measure 2008

Section 17 – Co-operation: information and other assistance

54.Under subsection (1) the governing body of a maintained school or a further education institution is under a duty to co-operate with a local authority. They must provide them with information or other assistance necessary for the local authority to carry out their duties under the Measure. Local authorities are required by subsection (2) to provide each other with information or assistance that might be reasonably required for them to make assessments and travel arrangements. This will ensure that functions can be carried out effectively when learners travel between authorities or when a child lives in two different authorities.

55.Under subsection (3) and (4) local authorities and head teachers must also assist each other in relation to the enforcement of the travel behaviour code.
