Help with travel
While parents are responsible for ensuring children attend school regularly, we can provide help with transport to school, sixth form or college. We may be able to offer:
- a bus pass
- mileage allowance
- a taxi (in exceptional circumstances)
Those who get help with transport will need to get to the nearest pickup point or bus stop; a door-to-door service is only available for children whose needs require it.
Help with transport to school does not cover work experience placements, ad hoc visits to other schools or colleges, out of hours clubs, or any journeys planned for weekends or bank holidays.
School journey times for primary aged pupils may be up to 75 minutes, and up to 90 minutes for secondary aged pupils.
When you complete an online or paper application, we will use and process your information for the purposes of your application, but also for providing children's education and supporting your child's teaching and learning. See our fair processing notice for more information.
