Northamptonshire Highways continue to operate a
home to school transport service to support key worker families and vulnerable children and adults. Demand for this service is being reviewed daily with schools and transport operators.
The priority is to keep all users and staff safe and healthy and they continue to take advice from the Government regarding the legal duty to deliver appropriate transport, whilst taking into account the incident or transmission of coronavirus.
They continue to provide home to school transport where required, please contact them if your circumstances need to change.
The statutory process of 'home to school' transport lies with the Travel Team and detailed advice should be taken from them. You can find out more information by visiting the school travel assistance webpage.
Travel arrangements will be agreed for pupils with a newly issued education, health and care (EHC) plan via the
Travel Co-ordination Unit(TCU).
You can find about more information about the TCU and apply for travel assistance on the special educational needs travel assistance webpage.
Year 7 - Applications for travel assistance for the next academic year starting in September 2020.
If your child will be transferring to secondary school in September 2020, and you think you may be eligible for travel assistance you will need to apply online
before 31 May 2020 to allow time for consideration and planning.
Any current travel arrangements for students transitioning from primary school to secondary school (academic year 6 to year 7) but remaining at the same school, will
not automatically be renewed. In this situation, a new application form must be submitted to the TCU for consideration.
