Leicestershire County Council are currently carrying out a consultation on proposed changes for home to school transport.
The changes will mean that free school buses are only provided for children to their nearest school if that school is more than 3 miles away (2 miles for primary schools).
Investigations show that a number of Thringstone families may be affected by these proposals.
Historically most children who have attended Thringstone Primary School have 'fed up' to Newbridge High School in Coalville as the village has fell in the secondary schools catchment area. Many children living in the north of the village (Henson's Lane, Springfield, Melrose Road etc.) have received free bus transport as Newbridge is more than 3 miles from their home.
Under the proposals free bus transport would not be provided to Newbridge as Castle Rock High School is nearer and seemingly (using walking routes on Google Maps) less than 3 miles from any home in Thringstone, meaning that free transport would not be provided to that school either.
The County Council are proposing the changes will come into effect from September 2015 and will not affect any children currently at Newbridge who receive a free bus pass.
County Councillor for Thringstone, Leon Spence, said "I would strongly urge any parents who think they may be affected to respond to the consultation before it closes on 12 March.
