Your child qualifies for free transport if they attend the nearest catchment school or one that is nearer to your home, and the distance (measured by the nearest available walking route) is:
• year R to 3: more than two miles
• year 4 to 11: more than three miles (this is reduced to more than two miles if your child meets low income criteria)
Where parents name the designated catchment school as one of their 3 preferences and a place is not available, assistance may be offered to the next closest school, where the walking distance criteria are met according to year group above.
If you think your child qualifies you should apply through the online Transport Portal. Please follow the link below which will take you to the website which will provide more information and the link to the application portal:
