    Anon, might be worth posing on the motoring thread, or pistonheads to ask if anyone can recommend a good garage within your area? (Dont mention you go to Hellfords though or the pickforks will come out! )

    Grr!

    School transport rules are clear. If you are more than 3 miles from the nearest suitable school then the LA has to provide transport. A suitable school means, at the very least, the nearest one with a place. That's why you want to push back at the LA on providing a place - if the LA says go to school X then they have to provide transport to X if over 3 miles. If you are choosing a school and there are nearer schools with places then there is no obligation to provide transport.

    Of course the LAs are run on tight budgets and school transport is down the list, so if they can rely on the parents they will. So often they won't even let you know they have an obligation.

    Can chat about what transport they should be providing once you have the place, but in the mean time, suggesting that you know the rules and will expect transport provision if they insist that Y is the only school with a place, may encourage them to find a place at X. School numbers are not immovable at Caitlin's age. Keep pushing.

    AFAIK it is fairly standard to hear appeals in September, not least because there is every chance of a child leaving over the Summer.

    For balance, I'm not unsympathetic to the school. A family arrives on the door step and asks for school places. In an oversubscribed school they can't just magic places to appear.
