Home to School Transport - Changes to Administration
Please note that with effect from 1st July 2019 Home to School Transport eligibility and arrangements for all pupils, including those with SEND but without an EHCP, temporary medical conditions, or the issuing of Travel Passes will be administered via Sefton Travel Support Team rather than the School Admissions Team.
There is no other change to how eligibility will be assessed or how the transport arrangements are made, it is purely an internal change, which has resulted in a different team taking over responsibility for all Home to School Transport arrangements.
For your information only, the manager of the Team is Graham Lymbery - email: firstname.lastname@example.org – Contact details for parents as shown below:
Should you or any parents need to contact Sefton Travel Support Team the contact details are:

Run a Beep Beep! Day to engage early years in road safety basics
Beep Beep! Days with Timmy Time, sponsored by Churchill, are a great opportunity for early year’s educators to introduce children to road safety basics, with fun activities and resources provided by Brake, the road safety charity. Every year thousands of tots and infants aged 2-7 take part to help save little lives.
Every day, 500 children and young people are killed on roads around the world. Brake works to stop road deaths and injuries by campaigning for safer roads, and supports people bereaved or injured in road crashes.
To help UK early years get involved with the initiative, Brake produces a range of special resources to help little ones understand road safety basics, from the importance of holding a grown up’s hand to recognising when it’s safe to cross.
Everyone who registers to take part receives a free e- resource pack or can purchase a bumper pack for just £11.50 +VAT, per 50 children. The pack includes lots of fun and reusable road safety activities, including colouring sheets, posters, laminated activities, certificates, stickers and balloons! For this event the resources will feature characters from Timmy Time!
In 2018, over 2,500 nurseries, schools and childminders registered to take part, helping spread important messages to more than 350,000 children. The event also provides an ideal opportunity to fundraise for Brake by dressing in stripy clothes in exchange for donations. Funds raised help the charity in its work to support bereaved and seriously injured road crash victims, and campaign for safer roads.
