Home to school transport information
Home to school transport
It is a parent or carer's responsibility to ensure their child gets to and from school safely every day, including those with additional needs.
We provide support with home to school travel in cases where we considers it necessary following an assessment.
Pupils with additional needs
In a small number of cases, pupils may need help because they have additional needs. These may include school pupils with:
- special educational needs (with or without a statement or education, health and care plan)
- a physical disability (temporary or permanent)
- a medical/psychological condition (temporary or permanent)
- other special needs, including family circumstances
