Transport to School and Parking
Oxfordshire Free Transport
Oxfordshire have a statutory requirement to provide free transport in certain situations. The policy changed in 2015 and the details can be found here:
The current bus timetable is as follows:
School Bus Timetable – Route No 3-BF57
Coxwell Road/Fernham Road Bus Stop, Faringdon
Cowell Road, Faringdon
Gilligans Way, Faringdon
Little Faringdon – Cottages
Filkins – War Memorial Bus Stop
Broadwell – Junction of Kings Lane
St Christophers CE Primary School
(Kelmscott – The Church - TBA)
Transport is provided by Oxfordshire and parents have to apply to them directly not the school.
The roads around the school can get very congested in the mornings and at the end of the school day. We ask parents to be considerate when parking, and not to block the driveways of local residents or park on the junction to The Elms. We also ask, for the safety of the children coming out of the school gate, parents NOT to park on the zig-zag yellow lines.
The staff car park should also NOT be used unless there are specific reasons and prior agreement. This includes picking up from after school clubs due to safety issues surrounding children exiting through the main entrance and having to walk through the car park.
