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 provide transport to the closest suitable school to their home. We will assess the appropriateness of walking distance and site access on an individual basis. To apply, please visit our school transport (4-16 year olds) or transport for (16-19 year olds) pages.

If you disagree with a decision we make regarding school transport support for children with mobility problems, you can appeal a decision.

Independent travel training

We offer a structured programme of support which is designed to promote independent travelling skills for young people with special educational needs. Assessments are undertaken by the travel trainers in conjunction with the young person, their school or college, work placements and their family. The assessment is designed to determine that the young person is aware of their environment and other people, can recognise dangers, can use pavements and road crossings appropriately.
