Transport

Many of our pupils travel to school using school transport. For more information, or to find out if your child is eligible, please contact Havering Transport on 01708 441 287.

The service operates during term time, collecting children and young people from their homes or agreed collection points, ensuring they arrive on time and ready to learn. In the afternoon, they are collected at home time and returned safely back again.

All drivers and passenger assistants are specially trained to provide transport services for children and young people with SEN.

Eligibility is assessed by:

  • distance
  • safety of the route
  • income
  • mobility needs

Before applying for travel assistance you must read the full criteria given in the policy document.
