Home to School Transport

Home to School Transport

Most pupils that attend Applefields School travel to and from school in taxis or minibuses under contract to the local authority. This transport is usually provided free of charge. In York the home to school transport to Applefields School is managed by Streamline Taxis on behalf of the local authority.


Before the beginning of the school year, or before a change in the transport arrangements, drivers and escorts are asked to contact families to introduce themselves and meet your son or daughter. The driver will provide you with a contact telephone number and advise you on a collection time and a time when they would expect to bring your child home.


If your son or daughter child is absent from school please contact the driver or escort as soon as possible and advise them of when you expect your son or daughter to return to school.
