School Free Transport

Content 1

Is my child eligible for free home to school transport?

Your child may be able to get free transport to school, depending on how far their walk is, the type of school they attend or if you are on a low income.

Distance from school

All children between 5 and 16 are eligible for free transport if they go to their nearest qualifying school and live at least:

  • 2 miles from the school if they are under 8-years-old
  • 3 miles from the school if they are 8 or older

Walking distances are measured by the shortest available route and where a child, accompanied if necessary, can walk with safety to school.

Faith

If your child attends a school on faith grounds, we will count this as your nearest qualifying school and will provide free home to school transport if:

  • Your child is a regularly practicing member of a church of the same faith as the school
  • They live at least 2 miles from the school if they are under 8-years-old or at least 3 miles from the school if they are 8 or older.

Low income

A family is considered to be on a low income if a child is entitled to free school meals or parents receive the full amount of Working Tax Credit.

If you are considered as on a low income, your child is eligible for free home to school transport as long as they live more than 2 miles (but no more than 6 miles) from one of their three nearest qualifying schools.

Renewing your child’s ticket

Your child’s free bus or rail ticket will be automatically renewed every academic year, unless you have applied based on low income.

If you applied based on low income, you will need to provide proof that you are still receiving benefit. You will receive a letter from us explaining how to do this.

If your child uses a bus, their old bus pass should be used to travel on the first school day in September. New bus passes have to be collected from the school’s main office on arrival.

If your child uses a train, rail warrants must be collected from Gun Wharf, Chatham, in the summer holidays and then exchanged for a ticket at a Medway railway station.

Request a review of a free transport decision

If your child is refused free transport you can request that the decision is reviewed. You must include:

  • Your child's name
  • Your child's date of birth
  • Name of the school that transport is required to
  • An explanation of your individual circumstances and why your child should be offered free home to school transport.

We have 20 working days to respond to your request.

If the review decides that your child is still not entitled to free transport, you may appeal against this decision. Details of how to appeal will be provided in the review response.

What happens if my child moves address or school?

If your child moves address or school it will change their entitlement to free home to school transport and they will need to be re-assessed.

You must notify us if they move address or schools. Failure to do this may result in you owing money to the council.

What does ‘nearest qualifying school’ mean?

This is the school nearest to your child’s home address, which suits their age and meets their needs. Their needs might include:

  • Ability - Some children may attend a grammar school if they are deemed academically able, by sitting the Medway Test or by reviewing their school work.
  • Faith - We will count a faith school as a child’s nearest qualifying school if they are a regularly practising member of a church with the same faith as the school.
  • Medical needs – Some children will have physical disabilities or special educational needs which require schools with special facilities.
  • A parent’s preference for a single sex or mixed school or for a school which teaches certain subjects cannot be taken into account.
