School Transport Statement
Cheshire East Transport provides transport to and from school for children who qualify under the current School Transport Policy. Below is a summary of the Policy, which is intended to act as a guide to parents/carers and is not a definitive statement. All pupils aged 4-16 who are in full time education are entitled to be considered within the policy.
The type of transport offered under this Policy is at Cheshire East Transport’s discretion and may take the form of public transport, private contract services or rail services. Cycle grants are available upon request as an alternative to a travel pass (currently £80 per year). Cash grants and mileage allowances are not normally available and can only be considered where there is no suitable transport provision.
The Policy is generally based on the distance to the local (catchment) school. Parents/carers should be aware that whilst they have the right to express a preference for their child to attend another school, any travelling arrangements or expenses will be their responsibility. If you are not certain which is the catchment school for your area then please visit the Schools Admissions webpage.
