Home to school transport policy and guidance 2021 - 2022

The purpose of this document is to set out the council’s policy regarding home to school travel assistance for children and young people attending school and colleges.

In the vast majority of cases, children and young people are able to get to and from school by walking, cycling, or accessing public transport, accompanied by a parent or carer where this is necessary. However, there are a small number of children for whom the above is not suitable.

All local authorities are required to make suitable travel arrangements to help children and young people who are eligible for assistance to attend school.

Slough Borough Council website provides information on support for home to school transport, discretionary arrangements, how to apply and types of travel assistance, and appeals process.
