Travel assistance for those aged 16 to 19 with SEND

Latest

The deadline for transport applications for September 2022 was 30 April 2022. If you missed the deadline, apply as soon as possible if your child is:
• moving into reception, year 7 or year 12 (even if they are not moving schools)
• changing school (any school year)


1. Travel assistance aged 16 to 19 with SEND

Young people aged over 16 and in school year 12 and above do not automatically get free school transport. This also applies to those with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

We provide travel assistance to students over 16 with SEND, whose circumstances could stop them from getting to school or college. We will assess the situation of anyone who applies for travel assistance to decide whether to provide support.

If the application for travel assistance is approved, the parent or carer will be required to contribute to the costs.
