Your child will be eligible to apply for assistance with transport to school if they are either attending:

  • your catchment school, and you live more than 2 miles from your primary school or 3 miles from your secondary school
  • one of the nearest 3 secondary schools, which is between 2 and 6 miles from your home and you are on a low income
  • the nearest secondary faith school because of religion or belief, which is between 2 and 15 miles from your home and you are on a low income

By 'low income' we mean parents/carers whose children are entitled to free school meals on the basis of their low income, or who are in receipt of their maximum level of Working Tax Credit (this means that there is no reduction in Working Tax Credit due to income as shown on your tax credit notice - TC602).
