Privilege Seat Application Window – Academic Year 2018/19

Dear Parent/Guardian
The dates for the privilege seat application window for academic year 2018 have been finalised. Should you wish to apply for a privilege seat for your child to use the school bus service you will need to apply between 9am on Monday 9 July 2018 and 5pm on Friday 20 July 2018 for children in school years 0 – 11, only. Please note that the eform will only be live between the above times and that applications received outside of this window will not be accepted.
Please bear in mind that this is the only window before the start of the academic year 2018 so if you wish for your child to be considered for a seat you will need to make an application during this 1st window.
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.
If you scroll to the bottom of the above webpage you will see the bus services for which you can apply. Should the service you require not be listed you will not be able to apply for that service at this time. 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 increasing from September and prices are set costs as follows.
– Up to a full term £130.00
– Up to half term £65.00
