Travelling to school

Please note: The county council only provides transport for eligible full-time pupils and students at the normal start and end times of the school/college day. Where a child is starting school and attending part time, parents are required to make their own arrangements. Eligible children may use the morning or afternoon transport service if they wish. Lunchtime transport is not provided.


When travelling to and from school it is important parents and children are aware of appropriate pupil behaviour. For children entitled to transport from the Council, please refer to our transport guidance page for answers to frequently asked questions and information about roles and responsibilities.
