'The RCT Borough Council Cabinet has today agreed to consult on the proposal to charge for all discretionary school transport. If this goes ahead, it will have a disproportional impact upon families who have chosen to send their children to a Church school. All of the Church schools in RCT, both Church in Wales and Catholic, are opposed to this change. As a group, together with the support of the dioceses involved, we will strongly resist these proposals on behalf of our children and their parents. We will be seeking the views of all of our stake holders shortly. The following statement outlines our initial arguments and was presented to the Cabinet at the meeting by Fr. Robert Davies, Chair of Governors St John Baptist Church in Wales High School Aberdare. Further details about the council proposals can be found on the council's website:https://webmail.rctednet.net/exchweb/bin/redir.asp?URL=http://www.rctcbc.gov.uk/en/councildemocracy/democracyelections/councillorscommittees/meetings/cabinet/2015/05/19/cabinet19-may-2015.aspx '
