Privilege pass scheme
Where home to school transport is provided by private contract buses or taxis, there are sometimes additional spaces available on these vehicles after all free transport has been allocated. We allocate these spaces through our Privilege Pass Scheme.
If your child is not entitled to free school transport, you may be able to apply for a Privilege Pass. This is a concessionary space that may be granted after we have first met the needs of all children who are entitled to free school transport.
Further information on how the scheme operates, including costs, is contained within the Privilege Pass Scheme leaflet.
All children who travel on council provided school transport are required to agree to adhere to the Pupil Acceptable Standards Scheme (PASS). This scheme details the rights and responsibilities of children using the provided services.
Failure to adhere to the PASS scheme may result in the withdrawal of entitlement to transport services.
