Guide: Transport for children with special educational needs

Applications

If your child is due to start secondary school or a special school in September an application form will be sent to you during the spring term. If you do not receive this by the end of May then contact us on 0345 155 1019. If your child is starting school during the academic year, a transport application form will be sent to you when you are offered a school place by the 0-25 Special Education Team.

The application form gives us essential information about your child’s needs and will help us to transport your child safely. It must be completed for all children requiring transport assistance, including those attending a special school. Please return the form as soon as possible as until this form is returned to us transport cannot be arranged. Information provided by you will be sent to escorts (if an escort is provided) and sometimes to the contractors providing the transport so that they can make sure your child is safe.
