If your child has special educational needs and disabilities but they do not have and Education, Health or Care Plan (EHCP) then you can also apply for school transport by going to the Digital Kirklees application page (opens in a new window)
Pupils who have an EHCP can also apply for free school transport through the School Transport team using the online form, emailing or calling the number below.
Telephone: 01484 221000 extension 71309
Pupils who have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP) will receive transport free of charge
regardless of distance if all of the following apply:
The child is attending the nearest appropriate school named in the EHCP and they have a physical or medical condition that prevents them from walking.
Where an SEND Child attends a mainstream school free transport assistance will be provided subject to the 2 or 3 mile limit (see information at the top of this page)
Where a parent chooses to send his/her child to a school which is not the nearest appropriate school (and is not named as such in the child's EHCP) the Authority will not provide assistance with transport.
