Travel assistance for post-16 learners with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND)
Following decisions taken in June and November 2018, the phasing in of proposed changes to the provision of school transport for students over 16 with special educational needs and disabilities in Leeds has been paused.
Young people entering post-16 education in the 2020/21 academic year, along with those already in post-16 education, will continue to receive transport assistance under the provisions of the Children’s Transport Policy, November 2015 until they leave post-16 education. Applications for transport assistance will be assessed under the criteria found in the November 2015 Children's Services Transport Policy (PDF 124KB).
If you have a child starting post-16 Education in September 2019, who is currently in receipt of transport assistance and would like more information, please contact the SEN Transport Assessment Team.
