Post 16 Special Education Needs Home to School Transport

Students are 16 and over the compulsory school age and who have special transport needs resulting from their Special Educational Needs or Disability may be provided with transport assistance.  This will be from the primary home address to and from college or sixth form school at the beginning and the end of the college or school day.  Arrangements can not be tailored for pupils to be taken to or from College or School outside of these times.

To meet the needs of individual children transport assistance for children with special educational needs is provided:

  • if it is decided during the assessment process, that transport is necessary to meet the child’s needs;
  • that the child attends an appropriate Post 16 provider is close to the child’s home

Hull City Council agreed a new policy in April 2014 (reviewed annually)

The Post 16 Transport Policy 2023 2024  relates to special needs travel assistance.  A contribution of £380 (2023/24) towards the cost of travel is required from the student or parent/carer.

How to apply for a Post 16 Special Educational Needs Transport

If your child has an identified SEN need or it is decided during the Education, Health, Care Plan (EHCP) assessment process that transport is necessary to meet the child’s needs; a Special Transport Needs for Students application should be completed.

 This is an online form, and you will need to register first. Follow the steps on this link. Once you have an account you will just need to sign in.


The needs of each individual student are specific to the young person and when organising home to school transport for a young person 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 young person needs will be reviewed and if necessary, reassessed at each annual 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
