School transport

School transport

Free home to school transport is available if the child:

  • is between 5-16 years old
  • is attending their nearest suitable school
  • lives further away from the school than the statutory walking distances (2 miles for pupils under 8, and 3 miles for those aged 8 plus)

Children may also qualify for free transport to the nearest school if they are unable to walk for any of the following reasons:

  • they have Special Educational Needs
  • they have a disability or mobility problems
  • there is no safe walking route
  • use the nearest school checker to check if your child qualifies for a free transport. Please refer to the School Transport Policy for more details on eligibility.
