Travel to school or college

Public notice

We are currently consulting on the Local Plan Publication draft - from Wednesday 21 February, to midnight on Wednesday 4 April 2018.

Take part in the consultation

Find out if you qualify for help with travel to school or help with travel to sixth form or college or see our home to school transport policy for further details.

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)

Transport arrangements

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.

Your data

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.  Find out more.
