Guide: Secondary school transport

What if my circumstances change?

Income assessed entitlement has to be reapplied for every year so you should not assume that you will continue to have support if your circumstances change – for example if your child no longer has free school meals, or your family no longer gets the maximum level of Working Tax Credit. We advise you to consider whether you would be able to get your child to school if assistance was withdrawn because withdrawal of free transport is not considered sound grounds for an appeal, as you have been advised in advance that this could happen if your child ceases to be eligible.
