To qualify for transport assistance on medical grounds applicants must:
- live at a home address in Warwickshire
- be of compulsory school age (age 4-16) – medical transport is not available for new applicants over 16
- be attending their nearest appropriate school or college – this is the establishment in whose priority area you live (or another if nearer to home by the shortest walking route) or be the nearest sixth form/college offering the course(s) chosen (existing applicants only)
- have short or long term medical needs which make getting to school/college difficult.
Applications must be accompanied by a letter from a doctor or other medical professional to confirm the medical circumstances and how these affect your child’s ability to get to school.
If you would like to apply for transport assistance on medical grounds please complete and return a medical transport application form (DOCX, 96.48 KB).
- applications that are not fully completed or include insufficient medical evidence will be rejected
- once we have agreed that medical transport is appropriate it will normally take a minimum of five working days (and up to 15 working days) to arrange
- successful applicants are responsible for notifying us if there are any changes in circumstances
- parents will be invoiced for the full cost of medical transport provision if it is found that students have continued to use the service when their improved medical condition made special arrangements unnecessary.
