Home to School Transport Service

Our Home to School Travel Policy is key to Redcar and Cleveland Borough Councils aim of promoting social inclusion and parental choice by removing potential barriers to learning.

If you live in Redcar and Cleveland we can provide assistance with home to school travel if your child is of statutory school age and meets one or more of the following conditions:

Low Income eligibility: If you receive the maximum level of Working Tax Credit or if your child is entitled to free school meals, you can apply for help with transport to one of their three nearest appropriate secondary schools between two to six miles from the school to your home address. If your child goes to a secondary faith school, the distance between their home and the school must be between two and 15 miles.

To be eligible you must give us proof that you are on the maximum level of Working Tax Credit. If you are in receipt of free school meals you dont need to send in evidence (we can check this out for you).

More detailed information on the above criteria can be found in Redcar and Cleveland's Home to School travel policy below

Definition of nearest suitable school

References to the nearest suitable school are to be taken to mean the nearest qualifying school with places available that provides education appropriate to the age, ability and aptitude of the child, and any special educational needs that the child may have. The nearest qualifying school for a child with special educational needs may well be different than for other children. When considering eligibility for transport, for a school to be considered suitable it must have places available.
