Travel assistance for nursery age children


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)

2. Who gets travel assistance?

To apply, you must meet the following criteria.

Your child must:

  • live in East Sussex
  • have a current Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), or be in the process of acquiring one
  • be attending the nearest suitable school to home

We will then consider the circumstances of the student, their family, and their broader network. This will help us to decide whether it is necessary to provide travel assistance. Parents or carers will be expected to prioritise transporting the student over other commitments.
