School Transport

The legal responsibility for ensuring that a child attends school rests with the parents. You can request a place at any school for your child, but your child may not necessarily be entitled to free school transport. 


Your child will be entitled to free transport if they attend the nearest school to your home address and they:


  • are of statutory school age
  • live more than two miles away by the shortest walking route (for primary)
  • live more than three miles away by the shortest walking route (for secondary).


Your child will also be entitled to free school transport to the school designated to serve your home address (even if this is not your closest school) provided it is still further than the statutory walking distance.

Responsibility for School Transport lies with the Local Authority rather than with the school.
