Application for travel support for school students with SEND and EHP

This form must be completed by parents or carers who wish to apply for travel support for their child with a Statement of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) or an Education Health Care Plan (EHC plan).

You can read our travel support for students with SEND policy or call us on 0161 219 6400. 

It can take up to 30 days from the receipt of your application to the start of a travel solution. This may be less, if appropriate evidence, where required, is readily available, therefore please allow as much time as possible. 

It is the legal responsibility of the parent/carer to ensure their child attends school regularly including the period during this application process. Read more about the process
