Is my child entitled to free travel assistance?

Is my child entitled to free travel assistance?

Please note that a child having received or being in receipt of free transport to a particular school does not guarantee that free transport will be provided to any other siblings.  Applications will be assessed under the policy, road and school network in place at that time.

Be sure to understand the entitlement to travel assistance and consider how you child will get to school before making a school place application.

Children attending their catchment or closest school where the home address is over 3 miles from the school are entitled to free travel assistance.

More information is available on the free transport for under 16s web page. 

If your child is in receipt of free school meals or you are on the maximum level of working tax credits you can apply for free travel assistance on low income grounds.  To qualify your child must be attending one of 3 closest schools between 2 and 6 miles.
