Independent Travel

Over the past 2 years Joe, Joe and Ryan have been working hard with Alyson, learning the skills and developing the confidence to travel safely and independently on public transport.

They have been practising road safety, stranger danger and recognising landmarks that they can use as a safe meeting point. They have also practised using the telephone and carry laminated cards with a contact number for Alyson.

For the past few weeks the group have independently walked from school to the bus stop and then  travelled to Ashington on the bus to the specified meeting point. They have then moved around Ashington to different shops to buy items from their shopping list from home.

We are so proud of what they have achieved and are confident that they have the skills needed to continue to travel safely and independently when they leave us at the end of the summer term for the next exciting part of their journey!
