Better Together

Drop Off and Collection

On Foot: By far the best and healthiest way to get to school if you can!

By Bike: We encourage children to walk or cycle to school whenever possible.  We have a covered cycle rack within the playground where you can leave your bikes/scooters.  Please remember to wear a helmet and don’t forget your bike lock! We offer on road cycle training for pupils in years 4, 5 & 6.

By Bus/taxi: Norfolk County Council must provide free transport for children of school age (5-11 year olds) from Swaffham providing they meet certain criteria (see below).

By Car:  If you are driving to school please leave your cars around the green at the end of the lane.  Only registered disabled cars can park in the school premises.  We do ask that you consider your child, and other children’s safety at all times when driving to school. Please also be sensitive to our neighbours and don’t block any access points to their property.

Free Transport

School transport is provided by Norfolk County Council and not the school.  Norfolk County Council has a school transport page here with all the information needed on services are offered, whether you are eligible, and all the paperwork that needs to be completed.  http://www.norfolk.gov.uk/Travel_and_transport/Travelling_to_school_or_college/School_transport/index.htm

Here is a copy of Norfolk County Councils school transport policy: http://www.norfolk.gov.uk/view/NCC152011

Any queries regarding transport should be directed to The Passenger Transport Unit on 0344 800 8020.
