Have your say
Does your child take the bus to school? Did you know we provide free transport for over 11,000 children everyday.
All primary pupils who live more than a mile from their catchment school, and secondary pupils who live more than two miles away, qualify for free transport.
There are, however, over 800 pupils who live closer to their schools who also get free transport because historically there was deemed to be no accessible walking route.
Improvements made in pathways/cycleways, better lighting and the growth of some towns means that for many of those pupils there are now accessible routes for them to safely walk to school.
That's why we are currently holding a consultation on a new Walked Routes to School policy, which will clearly set out what factors are needed to have a route classed as "accessible". We'd like to involve parents from across Fife to get your views on the proposed policy. You can put forward your views by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
or in writing to:
Walked Routes to School Engagement
Fife KY7 5PQ
Once a new policy is agreed we will re-assess these routes to decide if free school transport is still necessary.
