Travel Training

We were thrilled to have so many of our pupils receiving awards at last week's Travel Training presentations. (Summer 2015). Pupils from across the Borough, who have been undertaking or completed travel training this Acadmic Year, were given a bus ride around the Borough.  The local Police were involved, enacting a series of "Keeping safe" scenarios on the bus which our pupils responded extremely welll to.  Well done to all past and present trainees!  

Hillingdon Travel Trainers are part of Ealing Mencap, and based at Hillingdon Civic Centre.  They work with individual students.  The trainer will work with your child and help them learn the route to school and back.  Training covers several key areas:

  • Learning the route
  • Asking for help
  • Road safety
  • Problem solving
  • Stranger awareness

If you would like further information about travel training for your child, please direct initial enquiries
to your child's Form Tutor.

TFL Travel Assistance Card 

You may find it useful to give the young person travelling a Travel Assistance Card

You show the card to staff when you need help.

Anyone who finds travelling difficult can have a travel support card. You might have a hidden disability or you might not often travel on your own.

The card will make travelling easier.

Staff will be able to help you more easily.

How do I use the card?

When you need help or support, you can show your card to any member of transport staff. They all wear uniforms.

There is a space on the card to write down anything that could help our staff to give you the support you need. You can also add your name and an emergency contact number.
