The School Transport Policy sets out the eligibility criteria for free school transport.
Is my child entitled to free school transport?
Free school transport is given to the children who:
- live more than two miles from their zoned school by the shortest available route
- are required to travel to school using a route that has been assessed as being unsafe under Section 4 of the Transport Policy
- have additional support needs.
We allocate any spare seats on school transport to pupils who are not entitled through our privilege pass scheme.
School transport is provided using existing public transport, contracted buses, taxis and agreed transport with parents.
