The Local Authority has a statutory duty, and in appropriate circumstances discretionary powers to provide assistance with home to school travel, based on a pupil’s individual needs and circumstances.
Parent and Carers are responsible for ensuring that their children attend school regularly and on time. Most pupils in Sefton:
- Walk to school accompanied, if necessary, by a parent/carer; or
- Travel to school on public transport; or
- Are driven to school by parents.
Wherever possible the Local Authority (LA) expects parents to make similar arrangements for children attending school.
