Primary school application forms

The information and application forms on this page are for primary school services only. (For secondary school applications, please see this page.)

Please note that Education Transport staff are following Government guidance are now home working due to Coronavirus. Regretably this means we are unable to post out paper forms by request until further notice.

Before completing any application forms, please refer to our terms and conditions of registration for primary school services and MyBus primary school FAQs.

Renewals for existing passengers for September 2020

If your child was registered during the 2019-2020 school year, we have automatically renewed everyone for the new school year starting September 2020 - except those who will progress to secondary school - so there are no forms to complete and nothing further for you to do.

However, if your child currently qualifies for statutory zero fare, you must still undergo renewal procedures to continue with your qualification from September and we will only re-register your child as a cash fare payer on their bus until confirmation of qualification is received. See our statutory zero fare pages for further information (select the page for the local authority under which you live).

Changing your details: we have used all your existing registration details (stops, days of travel, contacts etc) and carried them over to the new school year. However, if you wish to make any changes or if you no longer wish to travel from September, either:

  • telephone us on 0113 3481122 and we will amend your details subject to the usual security checks.
  • if you have lots of changes to make (for example, if you've moved address and so wish to change all your contacts and bus stops etc.) you can optionally as an alternative to telephoning in complete the new starter form listed below if you prefer.
