Transport to School and College

Children and young people that have an Education, Health and Care Plan may be able to get help from the Council to support them with their travel to and from school or college. This will depend on a number of factors including their needs, their circumstances, where they live and where they are travelling to.

We may be able to provide financial support through a Personal Budget so that you can organise your own transport arrangements, travel training so that your child learns to use public transport, or may be able to provide a direct bus service.

Parents, carers and young people should contact the SEN Team if they wish to request support with transport.  More information can be found in the Islington Home to School Travel Assistance Policy and the Post 16 Transport Policy Statement.

Statutory guidance for local authorities on Home to School Transport and Post 16 Transport is also available.
