The council has published 3 separate education transport policies which set out the eligibility criteria for qualifying for home to mainstream school, special school and further education college/sixth form transport. If entitlement to transport is important to how your child will get to and from school or college, it is vital you read and understand the relevant policy, which will provide you with further information and assist with any questions you may have, before you apply for a school or college place.
