Home to School Transport
Home to School Transport Support - Digital
Information from Wigan Council Transport Team.
Wigan Council is a Digital Council and encourages the wide scale use of its ICT Systems and Services for communicating with customers, clients and staff for business related purposes. We have supported the Council’s digital accessibility by making our SEND home to school application form for academic year 2019/20 available on the Council’s website for parents/carers to download and to email their completed application to the Transport Team.
For academic year 2020/21 and going forward, our application processes remain the same. However, in the move to smart working we have improved our application form by making it fully digitalised and this means we will no longer be accepting or sending out copies of the original paper based form.
This move has been made to make the process simpler for parents/ carers to apply. The form can now also be completed on a mobile phone and our new application system also makes it easier to keep in contact with parents/carers as they will received an automated confirmation for submitted applications as well updates throughout the application process.
Who is this for?
- Future transport requests
- New requests for September 2020
- If parents/carers need to re-apply, due to change of circumstance eg. Change of school or change of home address they should also complete the new digitalised application form.
There is a requirement to provide evidence to support an application for transport. If you require some support in obtaining digitalised copies of EHC plans or supporting evidence if they are not already in receipt of a paper copy.
