Specialised transport for pupils with learning difficulties or disabilities
There are a range of solutions available to pupils and young people with learning difficulties and/or disabilities, and those pupils attending specialist centres.
We may be able to offer your child a free bus pass or special vehicle, for example: taxi, minibus or wheelchair accessible vehicle to get them to school.
We may also be able to offer help to students with special needs who attend specialist schools / colleges outside of the Birmingham area as long as:
- They are attending the nearest school/college that meets their needs
- The placement is agreed as the most appropriate placement as part of their special educational needs assessment and review.
When you apply we’ll take into consideration:
- Whether your child lives within walking distance and is able to walk, use public transport or needs to use a special vehicle.
- Whether they’re attending the nearest available school that meets their needs – If you choose to send them to a school further away you will need to pay the cost of transport.
We regularly review the help that we offer, as pupils’ needs often change as they become older.
