What is SESTA?

Specialised School Transport Assistance (SESTA) is a service provided by the Ministry of Education that assists children and young people with safety and/or mobility needs that prevent them from travelling independently to school.

If your child has safety and/or mobility needs they may be eligible for Specialised School Transport Assistance (SESTA). While it is your responsibility to get students to and from school, the Ministry may provide assistance in cases where extra assistance is required to make the journey as safe as practicable for your child.
