If you are moving to another local authority and your child or young person receives free transport because of their Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), you must inform your current local authority of the date you are moving. The transfer of the EHCP does not happen automatically; your current local authority will transfer the EHCP either on the day of your move, or within 15 working days of the new local authority becoming aware of your move.
Your new local authority then has 6 weeks to tell you that the EHCP has been transferred and when they will be reviewing the plan.
If you are moving out of Hertfordshire, let the SEND team know the date you are moving and where you are moving to. As soon as you have a moving date, contact your new local authority to request transport for your child or young person.
If you are moving into Hertfordshire, tell your current SEND Team in advance your new address and the date you expect to complete the move. Contact the SEN transport team via email to firstname.lastname@example.org for information about transport support.
If you are moving within Hertfordshire and receive free transport, let the SEND Team know your new address so they can update your records. You will also need to let the SEN transport team know so that we can reassess your transport based on your new circumstances. Please give as much notice as possible as we may need to change your young person's transport.
