Important Changes – Home to School Transport

South Tyneside Council would like to let you know that there have been changes to the Home to School Transport application form. The new form ensures  the Local Authority has all relevant information to inform both decisions and risk assessments. On this basis all families currently receiving Home to School Transport assistance MUST reapply for the 2018/19 academic year. The Local Authority will be unable to offer support to pupils who have not been assessed using the new application form.


If you would like to apply for support with Home to School transport please contact the Transport Team on 0191 427 2689 or by e-mailing The Local Authority is unable to process archived versions of the application form. Please ensure you request the new form directly from the Transport Team.   For more information on South Tyneside Council’s Transport Policy please visit
