Bus Services To Cliff Park Ormiston Academy
Norfolk County Council must provide free transport for children of compulsory school age (5-16) who attend their nearest catchment or nearest school, provided they meet the criteria below:
- They are 8 years of age or over and living more than 3 miles from school;
- They are of high school age, are entitled to free school meals or their parents are in receipt of the maximum level of Working Tax Credit and
- they are attending one of 3 appropriate schools closest to their home and that school is between 2 and 6 miles away; or
- they are attending the nearest school preferred on grounds of religion or belief, where this is between 2 and 15 miles from their home.
- The academy will investigate additional transport outside the Norfolk provision e.g. into Suffolk, providing there is sufficient interest. Please contact Mrs Joanne Spurgeon, PA to the Principal, by telephoning 01493 661504 for further information.
- A cycling allowance of £200 per year is also available. Anyone applying for this allowance must consider how they will travel to school when they feel that weather conditions may make cycling undesirable. The County Council will not provide alternative transport in such circumstances.
