At present, children who live in the outlying areas are brought to school using a minibus and a taxi. The map detailed in Secction 28 shows the extent of the school's catchment area which is used for calculating whether or not a child is entitled to free transport or not.
Children living within the catchment area are entitled to free transport according to the following scale.
The actual distances involved are usually measured by the LA. Parents and carers can appeal against decisions regarding these distances by writing to the Area Education Officer Any complaints regarding this service should also be made to the Area Education Officer, although the school would also like to be informed as well.
Please note that it is the responsibility of parents and carers to arrange for children to travel in safety between their home and the picking-up and setting-down points for school transport..
