Our response times
If your enquiry is for the existing school year, and is received after November of that year, responses will take up to 10 working days.
If your enquiry is for the new school year in September, you need to understand that:
- applications for seats should only be made once the previous school year is over.
- requests will take longer and a place on the vacant seat scheme cannot be guaranteed.
- seats are usually allocated at the end of October. This is to ensure that all children who are authorised for free home to school transport have seats first.
- you should always plan alternate arrangements for the first half term of any school year.
