We would encourage parents to use our Eligibility and Application Form Checker on our website and if they feel that their child may be entitled to receive free home to school transport assistance submit an application so we can make an assessment.  The application form is available on the council’s website from the School Transport web pages.

If you have an enquiry regarding the school admissions process or are currently on a waiting list for a preferred school please contact rbwm.admissions@achievingforchildren.org.uk for assistance.

As soon as we receive further information we will contact Cox Green School to disseminate to parents.  Updates will also be issued on the RBWM website School Transport web pages.
