It is important to think about how a child or young person will get to and from a setting for their whole school career when choosing a school or college.

The Home to School Travel Team will work with parent/carers, young people and other partners to find creative, innovative, independent and inclusive ways for children/young people who meet criteria for support with travel to get to their setting. Appendix 16.1 and 16.2 Home to School Travel Policy set out the criteria for accessing Home to School Travel support. The Home to School Travel Team can also offer Personal Travel Budgets for families’ to have choice and control with their child or young person’s travel to school.

You can talk to Home to School Travel Team about any support that might be available to your child or young person for travel options and support.  Home to School Travel Team can be contacted directly on home.school.travel@bristol.co.uk.
