Apply for school transport

Your children may be able to get travel assistance to school depending on how far the walk is and any special needs they have.

All children who are in reception year to the end of year 11 qualify for travel assistance if they go to their nearest suitable or catchment school and live at least:

  • 2 miles from the school if they are under 8
  • 3 miles from the school if they are 8 or older. The statutory walking distances are measured by the shortest available walking route

If there is no available walking route, children may be offered travel assistance.
