Will you qualify?


Before you decide on a school for your child, you should think about how they will get to school. We do not provide free travel assistance for most children, so it is the responsibility of the parents or guardians to arrange for their child's transportation. We will assess all children based on the same criteria, but we will also take into consideration the needs of children with Special Educational Needs and/or Disabilities.

We have different policies for children of different ages. More information can be found on our travel assistance policies and guidance notes page.

It is important to note that the home to school travel assistance policy is different from the school admissions policy. You can apply to any school, but your child will only have one closest suitable school for travel purposes. This means that the nearest suitable school for travel purposes may be different from the nearest school used for assigning school places under admission criteria.

If the child lives at two different addresses, we will only provide travel assistance to one address. Parents must choose one of the addresses as the permanent address for the purposes of school travel assistance and school admissions.
