Travel Assist

Transport is arranged by Enfield Council not Oaktree School.

A child with special educational needs (SEN) may be eligible for free Home to School transport provided by the Local Authority.

Eligibility is based on an assessment of the child's individual needs in accordance with Enfield Councils Travel Assistance Policy.  The policy sets out in detail the criteria  used when deciding if a pupil should be provided with transport.

This includes:

  • Pupils age
  • Pupils needs
  • The distance between home and school
  • The nature of the route or alternative route that could be taken

Any decisions about transport are made by the Local Authority and may be taken to a SEN panel.

If travel assist is granted, transport is not always provided in the form of a school bus, you will be visited by one of Enfield's Travel Brokers who will discuss with you other options, i.e public transport, escorted by a family member or friend, petrol allowance.
