Travel assistance to school and college
When choosing a school place, it is important to think about how your child will travel to and from school each day. Most families in Wokingham organise their own home to school journey. They may walk, cycle, use public transport, lift-share with other families or take their child to school in their family car.
If there is a school with places available that could meet the needs of your child and is closer to your home than the school or schools listed in your application and/or which offer your child a place, the placement will be classed as Parental Preference, and you are unlikely to qualify for travel assistance.
Please note, parental working commitments will not be considered as part of the decision to award transport support.
