School Transport

Your child will be entitled to free transport if they attend the nearest school to your home address and they:

  • are of statutory school age
  • live more than two miles away by the shortest walking route (for primary)

We currently have four buses and a taxi providing transport, from Whiddon Down, Throwleigh, Chagford, Gidleigh and Drewsteignton areas. For more information, please visit:

Safeguarding is our main priority. If you need to make any changes to the bus arrangements for your child at the end of the day, it is imperative that you contact the school by phone or email ( to let us know. Please do not ask your child or the bus driver to pass messages on. Our policy with the children and bus companies is that we will only accept instructions directly from parents, to ensure children’s safety and wellbeing at all times.
