Getting to School
There is no parking on site (only limited places for staff). Please do not stop outside the school as there is no safe place for children to alight. The Elms public car park at the rear of the school usually has spaces and this is by far the safest place to park.
It is recommended that young children are escorted into school as the traffic on New Road, although light, often moves quite fast. There is a crossing patrol on College Road, which is a busy road with lorries and buses.
There are facilities for leaving bicycles in the school grounds but the Headteacher must be consulted before children cycle to school. Children who cycle should have passed, or be taking, their Bikeability course, otherwise they should be accompanied by an adult cyclist.
There are buses that transport children to and from catchment villages.
Is your child eligible for Suffolk County Council funded school travel? Suffolk’s School Travel Policy has been amended, so it is important that you understand how this might affect your child’s eligibility for funded school travel from September 2019.

If your child is eligible for funded school travel you now need to opt-in (apply) each year so they can receive it. The opt-in window for this year is open from 1 March 2019 to 31 May 2019.
