All children up to 16 qualify for free school transport if they go to their nearest suitable school and live at least 3 miles from the school. If there’s no safe walking route, they must be given free transport, however far from school they live. Contact your local council if you think that the walk to school isn’t safe.
It is the Local Authority who have the contract with the coach companies, not the school. The Local Authority also decides whether students are entitled to bus passes or not. Therefore any issues regarding buses should be addressed to the relevant Local Authority.
