Where a pre-school child either has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) or is undergoing an EHCP Assessment and is placed at a primary special school, in Trafford, in accordance with the Children and Families Act 2014, they may be entitled to travel assistance. To be considered eligible there needs to be medical or social reasons, supported by professional evidence for example from a social worker or medical professional, why your child cannot attend the place without Council travel assistance. If considered entitled to travel assistance, there will be a charge for this service.
The charges will be £200 per term and payment is required at the start of the term. If families can demonstrate financial hardship (please refer to Low Income Families on page 7 of the All Age Travel Assistance Policy), the charge will be £100 per term.
