- How do I get a mileage allowance?
We may offer a discretionary payment of travelling expenses in the form of a mileage or cycling allowance.
We pay this at the end of each term, once the school has signed the claim form to confirm the child’s attendance. We will not backdate any payments. If a child qualifies for help we will pay expenses from the date we have agreed the application.
Note: there may be two or more children from the same address attending the same school or same site. If we have agreed to a mileage allowance we will only pay one allowance as we expect them to travel together. We will reimburse you for two return journeys between home and school each day attended.
If a bus or contracted route becomes available, we may withdraw this payment. In this case we would replace it with a pass for public or contracted transport.
