The needs of each individual child are specific to the child and when organising home to school transport for a child the School Transport Team will attempt to meet those needs. In many cases where appropriate it will be expected that children will share transport to maximise cost effectiveness.
In all cases the child needs will be reviewed and if necessary, reassessed at each annual EHCP review of the plan where it is decided that:
- a transport need is now required;
- a transport need previously identified should be modified;
- transport is no longer required
