School Transport

Contact has produced new information for parents with disabled children about school transport and rights entitlements. This is available on our website at:

https://contact.org.uk/advice-and-support/education-health-social-care/education/transport-to-school-and-college/

They have two factsheets available; Home to School Transport – England and Challenging School Transport Policies – England. You can download these from the above website or let them know if you would like them to send you a copy.

You may have seen that the Secretary of State for Education announced plans to review school transport statutory guidance to make sure all local authorities are providing school transport for eligible children with special educational needs. The decision was made as a result of findings from Contact’s School Transport Inquiry.
