Travelling to school
Sheffield City Council’s home to school travel policy states that families living within the statutory walking distances are not eligible for a ‘free’ bus pass, unless there is no safe walking route available.
If you have any queries about eligibility, please contact Customer Services on 0114 2734567 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
NB. Travel support for children and young people with Special Educations Needs and/or Disabilities (SEND) with an Education Health & Care Plan or Statement of Special Educational Needs is covered by a separate policy, and all applications are assessed against individual needs. If you have any queries about SEND travel support, please contact the Assessment & Training Team on 0114 2053542 or by email Indetravel@sheffield.gov.uk
