Derbyshire County Council provides assistance with transport for full time secondary school pupils to the end of statutory school age who do not live within walking distance of their normal area school (3 miles).

In all cases, the distance between home and school is measured by the shortest available route.  Bus passes or refunds are issued where appropriate and special contract transport is arranged if public transport is not available.

Parents who send their children to a school which is not their normal area school will not normally receive assistance with their transport costs.

Transport will be provided for pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities who attend their nearest school, where the journey exceeds the statutory walking distances or in other cases in accordance with Derbyshire County Council’s Special Educational Needs Transport policy.
