posted 16 May 2017, 05:38 by Karen Bricknell

Dear Parent/Guardian

Should you wish to apply for a privilege seat for your child to travel on a contracted school bus service from September 2017 you will need to apply during the first application window which is between Monday 5th June 2017 and 4pm on Friday 16th June 2017.

Please note if your child has previously had a privilege seat, you will need to reapply. Please be aware that this first round application window is for primary and secondary school aged children only and you will not be able to apply for sixth form students. It is important to note that applications received outside of the application window mentioned will not be accepted.

Further information on the privilege seat process can be found online, here: https://www.iwight.com/Council/OtherServices/School-Transport/Privilege-Seat-on-School-Transport. Please also note the FAQ’s, Code of Good Practice and Ticket Terms and Conditions sections available via the this webpage.

Do bear in mind that making an application for a privilege seat does not guarantee a seat on the school bus.

Privilege seat ticket prices are set costs as follows.

-          Up to a full term £95.00

-          Up to half term £47.50

-          Up to a full term AM or PM only £47.50

-          Up to half term AM or PM only £23.75
