Oldham Council intends to create a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) from home to school transport services for children and young people with special educational needs throughout the academic year. The SEND Travel Assistance Service currently transports approximately 800 pupils with either special educational needs, disabilities or because of their mobility issues. There are approx. 2500 children and young people with EHCPs in the borough and circa 8,000 children and young people 0-25 years on SEN Support equating to one in ten in the borough. The service operates over 190 school days as determined by the School Holiday Calendar and considering other occasional days determined by individual schools governing bodies. The provision of transport is determined by the needs of the individual pupil. Those with severe and complex health, physical or educational needs can be transported by either individual taxis or adapted vehicles. Children or young people with less severe needs ordinarily travel via a multi-passenger minibus.
