German term or phrase: Reichgrösse
Reichgrösse (Schulkinder)

This is listed as one of many 'handicaps' for travellers using train station services in a questionnaire.

Other handicaps listed include language, deafness, blindness, poor eyesight due to old age, wheelchair users etc. etc.

I'm not sure how to translate this succinctly.

Any suggestions?

neutral  David Moore: Since schoolchildren are specified, I don't think "height" is necessary - and it doesn't refer just to the handicapped, as your reference does.
