Car Sharing

Car sharing for all pupils from Year 1 and above is an absolute requirement (where children are not using other means to get to and from school) so that we can manage the traffic flow onto our site; we expect all families to give this option their full consideration.  The school helps facilitate this by offering a car share website.  We aim for each car to hold at least two pupils.  The scheme works really well for parents and children and it is by far the most cost effective approach.  The school has registered with a car sharing website called FAXI. This is a closed, private group and is only accessed by using the link below. Once registered with this website, parents will be able to find other parents who live nearby and make car share arrangements themselves.

To register with the Chichester Free School closed group on the FAXI website, please go to https://faxi.co.uk/@PO201QH. You will only be able to register by using the email address that the school holds for you. If you are having trouble registering, please email  office@chichesterfreeschool.org.uk or call us on 01243 792690.

The only parents that are allowed on site with one child in the car are Reception parents who may park up after 08.30. These parents will be issued with a car park permit before the start of term.

Public Transport

Stagecoach buses (51 and 600) will run to and from the School from Chichester Bus Depot every 20 minutes (approximately).

'Term rider' tickets are available from Stagecoach.

Other local transport can connect to these services.
