We understand that parents of children moving up to secondary school in September will now have received their offer letters.
If you have any questions regarding your school offer, how the waiting list system works, whether you need to remain on the waiting list to receive free transport, whether you are entitled to free transport, or whether you need to register for paid-transport until free transport can be confirmed, please call the Bucks County Council Schools Team on 01296 395000.
Bucks County Council have also answered some of the questions from local parents surrounding the change to policy in their updated Frequently Asked Questions document which is available via this link: https://www.buckscc.gov.uk/services/education/school-transport/check-if-youre-eligible-for-free-school-transport/
We understand that some of the wording within the BCC home to school transport policy for the Pitstone area may have been amended recently, to clarify the actions that need to be taken (or not taken) to qualify for free transport. Therefore it is very important that you keep up to date.
If parents have any ongoing concerns that the helpline can’t assist you with, please copy the Parish Council (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the County Councillor (email@example.com) on any correspondence to the school transport team so that we are aware of any local issues.
