No Pass No Travel

School Transport

For those students entitled to free travel to and from school, Devon County organises their transport.  We all work together to safeguard students’ wellbeing and always help anyone experiencing any difficulty to get home safely.  However, the whole process relies upon the “No Pass No Travel Scheme” that we must please all support:-

  • Only students who show a valid travel pass to the driver on every journey will be allowed to travel.  Students must travel on the vehicle indicated on their pass.
  • Please ensure that your child has their travel pass before they leave home every day.
  • Please ensure that your child knows what to do in the event they are not allowed to travel or the bus does not arrive (e.g. because of breakdown or traffic conditions or severe weather).  School attendance is very important and it is best to be prepared for any of these eventualities.
  • DCC will carry out regular pass checks throughout the year.
  • Drivers are not allowed to carry passengers who cannot show a valid pass.
  • If your child loses their pass during the day they should go to the school office to ask for a 10 day temporary pass.  Replacement passes cost £5 each and can be ordered online, or by sending a cheque with a replacement form.
