Nursery under 5s
There isn't a statutory duty to provide transport for nursery aged children, although we currently offer a contribution scheme for nursery age children with an education, health and care (EHC) plan attending the associated assessment nursery designated to them.
The agreed level of contribution for the 2019/20 academic year is £875. For families on defined benefits (please see below), a contribution towards the cost of the transport assistance will be £280 for the academic year.
Where families are in receipt of the following defined benefits listed below and the student qualifies for assistance, a contribution of £280 will be required:
- Income-based jobseekers allowance
- Income support
- Free school meals
- Child tax credit with annual income, as assessed by HM Revenue & Customs, of less than £16,190 on 1 September 2019 or subsequently on the date of application.
