Event description
What are your legal rights when it comes to school transport for your child with SEND?

About this Event

So many parents are put off choosing the most suitable school for their child due to the uncertain travel arrangements made by their local authorities.

But what are our legal rights surrounding school transport?

Leading Education and Disability Solicitor Kevin McManamon has won a number of high profile transport cases in recent years, and he's back to present this very important webinar that will enlighten us all as SEND parents and professionals.

We aim to cover:

  • What does the law say about about home to school transport ?
  • How does the law affect my child if has an EHC Plan and requires transport?
  • Which children/young people are eligible for transport?
  • What is a relevant educational establishment?
  • Does transport need to be door to door?
  • How do parents appeal decisions about transport?

As always we will be taking your questions during the webinar, to ensure you get what you need from it.
