Apply for travel assistance


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)

4. If your application is declined

If travel assistance is declined, we will contact you giving our reasons. You can appeal the decision. Everyone has the right to appeal if they disagree with the initial decision or with the transport arrangements offered. The County Council operates a two-stage appeal process for transport cases.

  • Stage 1 appeals will be considered by a panel of senior officers from across the County Council.
  • Stage 2 appeals are considered by The Discretionary Transport Appeal Panel. This is made up of 3 Councillors with experience in special educational needs and disability (SEND) transport.
