Home to School Transport Policy Consultation
The Council recently conducted a consultation on proposed changes to the current Home to School Transport Policy. Following this consultation a new Travel Assistance Policy has now been approved and is attached to this page for information
Depending on the pupil's circumstances, we may be able to provide free travel assistance between home and their educational establishment. This may be done in a number of ways including a place on a coach, minibus, or taxi; or in the form of a zero fare bus pass.
Further details are contained in the Home to School Transport Policy available at the link below or please telephone
