Home to School Transport

Parents and carers have a legal duty and a responsibility to ensure that their children attend school regularly and to make any necessary arrangements to ensure that they attend. In certain circumstances the Council has a duty to provide free home to school transport.
We understand that parents may have some COVID-19 specific questions regarding their child’s Home to School Transport Service from September 2020. Please see answers to our Frequently asked questions.    
Applications for transport starting September 2021 must be submitted by 30th April 2021.  Applications received after this date will not be ready in time when schools open and you will have to ensure arrangements are in place for your child to attend school.
We are asking everyone to either apply online if you are requesting a bus pass for public transport. If you are completing a Travel Exceptions and Appeals application which can be downloaded or printed out, please can this document be emailed in to the email address on the application and not posted.
