Travelling to and from school

Posted on by

SPPS main_0016_Layer 5Transperth through the School Bus Services (SBS) provide a free transport service for eligible students to our Centre.  

Eligibility is based on the student with special needs attending the school closest to their home that will meet the child’s needs. For example, if the child would be best suited to attending a Special School the distance is measured from their home to the nearest Special School.

Transport is from the child’s home to the school and return. The buses have a driver and a bus aide to assist with supervision and to address minor health issues. 

Leeming ESC has developed a very successful transport training program which enables some students to independently use public transport to come to school. All students at Leeming ESC participate in a transport training program commencing in year 8 where they are fully supported leading to increased independence as the student moves through the school.
