Representing families of children with disabilities and additional needs in Havering


Seat Belts

Parents are reminded to check every day that their child is correctly wearing their seat belt when travelling to and from school. The seat belt should be fitted across the shoulder and lap as shown in the picture.

Wheelchair users should also have seat belts across their shoulder and lap. While wheelchairs are crashed tested, the straps are not and will not be secure in the event of an accident.

Straps placed across the chest could cause injury.

If you are not satisfied with the positioning of the seat belt please mention it to the driver or escort. If you would prefer not to discuss directly with the bus staff please let us know immediately and we will raise the issue on your behalf without revealing your name.


Transport Discussion Group

Positive Parents have set up a Transport Discussion Group and meetings will be held on a termly basis with members of Passenger Transport.

If you have any issues that you would like discussed please contact us and we will raise them on your behalf.

Both Positive Parents and Passenger Travel Services are fully committed to working together to ensure that our children are transported happily and safely and we have agreed to meet regularly. We would like to hear your views and any issues that you feel need to be addressed by email to info@positiveparentshavering.org.uk
