Privilege Rides may become available where there are vacant places on school transport vehicles. The availability of Privilege Rides will be assessed after places for entitled pupils and those who qualify for free places on other grounds such as safety issues and medical circumstances have been allocated. Privilege Rides will thereafter be allocated in accordance with the Council’s assessment criteria.
The Council has assessed a charge for Privilege Rides of £71.75 per child per term, payable on receipt of invoice. This charge reduces to £60.20 per child where there are two or more children. Should you feel that payment of this charge would cause you undue hardship due to your financial circumstances please let us know and we will advise you how to apply for an assisted place. It should be noted that no financial assistance can be provided for any child attending school as a result of a placing request.
We will write to you as soon as possible to let you know if your application has been successful and an invoice will be issued for the due amount.
