LEAPS S5 Parents’ & Carers’ Information Evening

Wednesday 27 March 2019 7-9pm

Heriot-Watt University’s Edinburgh Campus (Riccarton)

If you are a parent or carer of a LEAPS-eligible S5 pupil, and they are thinking about college or university, this event is for you.

Find out more and register online: www.leapsonline.org/parents

This is an opportunity for parents, carers and guardians of LEAPS-eligible S5 pupils to come and find out more about the support LEAPS can offer a student who is planning to apply to higher education in S6, as well as providing the chance to speak to university admissions staff and SAAS about higher education options and funding via an exhibition. (We are also holding a LEAPS S5 Conference the week beforehand for LEAPS-eligible S5 pupils: www.leapsonline.org/s5conference.)

About LEAPS

LEAPS is a widening participation programme which aims to encourage and advise students who are traditionally underrepresented in higher education. We currently work with 59 schools throughout South East Scotland, supporting pupils who match LEAPS eligibility criteria.

More information about LEAPS can be found at www.leapsonline.org and details of LEAPS eligibility criteria can be found at www.leapsonline.org/eligibility.

ASSISTED TRAVEL – APPLICATIONS FOR SCHOOL TRANSPORT SCHOOL SESSION 19-20

Dear Parent/Carer

 

The new application form for school transport – for school session 2019-20 and guidance notes will be available on the Council’s website (key word search ‘school transport’) by early next week. The deadline for emailing applications forms, to school.transport@edinburgh.gov.uk for the new school session 2019-20 is 30 APRIL 2019.

In the meantime, until this information is available on the website, the following inform is provided to all parents and carers.

 

Apply for home to school transport (assisted travel)

 

  1. Completing the application form

 

One application form (as attached) replaces all other previous forms for all home to school assisted travel applications. Guidance notes, to assist with completion, are also attached to this email.

 

If you need help in completing the form, contact your child’s school and a member of staff will assist you or complete the form for you. If you have a child social worker allocated to your family, they may also assist you.

 

Make sure you retain a copy of the completed form.

 

Complete the application form to:

 

  • Apply for assisted travel for the new 2019-20 school session (if your child is starting or continuing in one of the City of Edinburgh’s schools or another educational establishment agreed by the Council).

 

  • Apply for assisted travel when your child starts at a Council school during the school session

 

  • Notify any change to your child’s circumstances that may affect existing assisted travel provision – a comprehensive re-assessment of the child’s travel needs is required so an application form must be completed in full for each change occurring during the school session.

 

Note: Where school staff or child social workers are assisting you, an application form must still be completed in full – telephone calls or emails from Council staff will not be accepted as an application for assisted travel.

 

This Form should not be used for applications for respite care / (associated Council transport through the Council’s Travel Hub), where provided, during school terms which are the responsibility of your child’s social worker /respite centre to organise and not your child’s school. Contact your respite centre or child social worker for further information.

 

  1. Sending the application form to school transport

 

If you are applying for school transport for the new school session 2019-20 email the completed application form to school.transport@edinburgh.gov.uk by 30 April 2019.

An automatic email response will confirm receipt of your application for your child.

 

Applications received after 30 April 2019 will be subject to delay in assessment and processing which, if granted, may not be in place until after the start of session in August 2019.

 

Paper copies of the completed application form are no longer accepted for assisted travel applications.

 

If you do not have access to email, contact your child’s school or allocated child social worker who can arrange for the completed form to be scanned and attached to a council email sent on your behalf to the school transport email address.

 

  1. How we assess home to school transport

 

The application form guidance notes (attached to this email) provide information on how we assess and arrange home to school transport for children who meet the Council’s eligibility criteria and the range of transport provision options.

 

  1. Need further information or help?

 

Email school.transport@edinburgh.gov.uk for any general queries about your application once submitted.

 

Email Travel.AllocationPanel@edinburgh.gov.uk for any queries about the application process or to raise any issues.

 

Your child’s school or allocated child social work can also help you with making and submitting an application for assisted travel.

 

Regards

 

Council Travel Allocation Panel (Home to school transport)
