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.
