School transport is provided by North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) who will assess automatically if your child is eligible.

School transport update

The school transport network which was in place prior to lockdown will be reinstated for the start of the Autumn term, with services running from the same places and to the same timetable as normal. Vehicles will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected before each journey. Parents and pupils are asked to play their part in safety measures by making sure they wash or sanitise their hands before each journey and pupils aged 11 and over wear a face covering unless they have a valid reason for exemption. For more information on safety measures which will be in place on school transport, visit; https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/schools-and-childrens-services-during-coronavirus-covid-19

If your child’s pass has not yet arrived, you can still use the transport. As with every other year operators will carry children without a pass for the first two weeks of term.

North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) provides free school transport to the catchment school or nearest school to your home if it is over the walking distances set out by law (3 miles for students in Year 7 to Year 11).

You do not need to apply for free home to school transport if your child is starting a school and you have applied for a place at a NYCC school. NYCC will automatically assess your child's eligibility and will send you a pass if you are eligible.
