Don’t miss out on free home to school transportPublished Friday, 22nd May 2020
Families in Hartlepool who are entitled to free home to school transport are being reminded to complete and return an important form to ensure that they remain entitled in the next school year.
Families who are eligible for this support on the grounds of low income are required to renew their entitlement each year by completing and returning an application form.
The form, with an accompanying letter, was posted to all eligible families of primary and secondary pupils by Hartlepool Borough Council’s Passenger Transport Services Team on 3 April with a return deadline of 8 May but to date a substantial number of the forms have not been returned.
Jayne Brown, the Council’s Passenger Transport Team Leader, said: “Possibly due to the impact of the Coronavirus outbreak, many families have not yet replied to us but it’s vital that they do so to ensure that they remain entitled for the new school year.
“We’d be grateful if they would please complete and return their forms to us as soon as possible and certainly by the end of this month.”
