For WRITTEN ANSWER on Tuesday, 31 March 2015.
Under the terms of my Department’s School Transport Scheme for Children with Special Educational Needs, children are eligible for school transport where they are attending the nearest recognised: mainstream school, special class/special school or a unit, that is or can be resourced, to meet their special educational needs.
The School Transport Section of my Department has no record of an application for school transport for the child referred to by the Deputy, in the details supplied.
The family in question should liaise with the Special Education Needs Organiser (SENO) and the school authorities should they wish to apply for school transport for the 2015/16 school year.
