- Can my child be picked up from or taken to an alternative location?
We provide free travel between your child’s permanent home address and their registered school. Home to school travel assistance will not be provided to a school at which your child is not a registered pupil.
Children cannot travel to or from other addresses to suit childcare or parental work arrangements. We cannot transport them from other family member's or child minder's addresses.
A child may spend time during the school week at more than one address. We will assess eligibility for free travel from the main address. This is the address held by the school. You must produce proof showing this is the address used for claiming child benefit. In exceptional circumstances we may consider entitlement to travel assistance from another address.
