Provision of Bus Passes
Bus passes may be provided to pupils who meet the following criteria:
- The pupils Home Address must be 3 or more miles from their catchment school.
All pupils’ distance will be calculated using the same method by City Development. They will calculate the shortest safest walking distance (SSWD) from home to school.
- The pupils Home Address must be more than 2 miles from their catchment school and be in receipt of Free School Meals.
In consultation with parents, some pupils may be encouraged to make their own way to school by public transport, in which case bus passes will be issued to them. Consideration will also be given to the provision of free transport for pupils with permanent medical conditions and/or a disability.
