Suffolk County Council Funded School Travel for 2022/2023

Parents will be able to opt in for SCC funded school travel for the 2022/2023 school year from the 1 March 2022. If their child is eligible, they must opt in by the 31 May 2022 to ensure that school transport is in place for the start of the Autumn term.

We ask schools to help us make sure parents are aware of the SCC funded school travel policy and what this means for their child or children. We also ask schools to help us ensure parents opt-in for SCC funded travel.

We have prepared some information which helps to explain the School Travel Policy and to help you communicate this information with parents.
