The general home-to-school policy of the county council is that free transport is provided only for children of compulsory school age (5 years up to 16 years) who:

  • are under 8 years of age and live two miles or more from the catchment or nearest school; or

  • are 8 years of age and over and live three miles or more from the catchment or nearest school

Some children are entitled to free travel however far they live from the school if they have an Education, Health, and Care Plan (EHCP) or statement of Special Educational Needs (SEN) and cannot walk because of their SEN, a disability or mobility problem.
