Drop off & 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 an open cycle rack outside the office where you can leave your bikes/scooters.  Please remember to wear a helmet and don’t forget your bike lock! We offer off road cycle training for all pupils in Key Stage 2, and on road cycle training for pupils in years 5 & 6 who are 9 years old or over.  

By Bus/taxi: Norfolk County Council must provide free transport for children of school age (5-11 year olds) living in the school’s catchment area providing they meet certain criteria:

Living 3 miles or more from school if over 8 years old

Living 2 miles or more from school if under 8 years old

For more information please see the links below. 

By Car: If driving to school please turn around using the roundabout and park along the left hand side of the road, facing away from the school.  Please consider your child, and other children’s safety at all times when driving to school. 

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:
