Hertfordshire County Council claims the transport requirement was explained to her parents before they sent her to a Church of England school in St Albans. Sydnie Jai lives with her mother Frances Wood at Hatfield – a journey of about eight miles to the school.
Mrs Wood said Sydnie is too young to consider baptism and she felt she was being discriminated against.
In a statement, the county council said: “Hertfordshire currently provides home to school transport to faith schools.
“We provide free transport to all children attending their nearest maintained faith school if they have a place there in line with their parents’ beliefs.
“We think it quite reasonable when offering transport to faith schools that parents show that the child is of that faith.
