Someone told me that children get free transport to school by bus or train. Is this true?

From KCC website.

Please note: Children assessed suitable for a grammar
school do not automatically secure eligibility for transport
assistance to a grammar school. All mainstream schools
are required to be able to meet the educational needs
of children across the mainstream eligibility range
including those in the top 25% of the ability range. Just as
a grammar school assessment does not guarantee entry
into a grammar school, an offer of a place at a grammar
school does not determine that transport will be provided
if an alternative mainstream school or academy is closer
to the home address.

A grammar school is a parental choice and where it is
not the nearest school, there may be no eligibility to
receive transport.

Unlike other secondary mainstream schools that are
able to cater for children across the entire ability range,
grammar schools are not able to accommodate pupils
below the top 25% of the ability range. Consequently
where a child’s nearest school to home is a grammar
school but they have not been assessed suitable for
grammar school, for transport purposes the grammar
school will not be considered as the nearest school.
