Transport for children with special educational needs or mobility problems
Transport for children with special educational needs
Consideration is given to each individual pupil's special educational needs as detailed in a formal Individual Development Plan (IDP) or other form of professional recognised assessment, at the time of assessment for transport.
Where the distance to the appropriate school is less than the statutory walking distance, we will consider travel assistance, taking into account the individual circumstances and the travel needs of the child.
Transport for children with mobility problems
If your child has mobility difficulties which prevent them from walking to or accessing the site of their local school, we will consider travel assistance to the closest suitable school to their home. We will assess the appropriateness of walking distance and site access on an individual basis.
