Help Getting To & From School

You may be entitled to help with school or college travel if your child or young person has special educational needs or disabilities (SEND).

Parents or carers are responsible for ensuring their children attend an educational setting. This includes the necessary travel arrangements to and from the setting.

If your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) You may be eligible for help with school travel.

Apply for help for children and young people under 16

There is no automatic entitlement to help with travel for a child or young person with an EHCP. Although, we have a duty and powers to make travel easier for a child with SEND if they meet the criteria set out in our SEND Transport Policy. Please complete this form for children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) who have an EHCP

If you are a parent or carer of a child who doesn't have an EHCP but needs travel assistance from home to school you can apply for help.
