Cornwall Council provides transport free of charge to
school in line with its duties under Section 508 and 509 of
the Education Act 1996 and Schedule 35B inserted by the Education
and Inspections Act 2006.
Provided transport is generally limited to those children living
outside walking distance (two miles for primary pupils and
three miles for secondary pupils) from their nearest suitable
school or the school designated for their address by the Local
Authority. However, transport will also be provided in some other
circumstances, such as when a child's special educational needs or
disability, or a parent's disability, demands it.
For more information see the complete Home to
School Transport Policy.
Applications or enquiries regarding transport to school and
whether your child is eligible should be sent to the email address
on the right of this page.
Further information is available on transport for students aged 16-19 to sixth forms
or further education colleges.

School Travel and Transport Guidance helpful.
