School transport appeals

Parents have a right of appeal to the Education Transport Appeals Sub-committee of Swindon Borough Council set out in part 8 of the School Transport Policy (PDF).

Where a parent has been refused transport assistance they can challenge the decision for the following reasons:

  • The nature of the transport arrangements offered
  • Their child’s eligibility
  • The distance measured in relation to statutory walking distances; and the safety of the route

Should your application be refused, your case officer will provide you with the forms required to make an appeal.
