School Premises, Security and Travel

North Elmham CEVC Primary School is a long-established village school, situated in the heart of North Elmham. The main part of the school is more than one hundred years old. The original building was extended in the 1950s and completely refurbished in 1997 when a new block comprising of four classrooms, craft area, group room and library was added.

The school site is locked out-of-hours and out of bounds to visitors or pupils. The building is alarmed and the school caretaker lives nearby. All doors on the access-side of the building have automatic locking systems.

To maintain a high level of safety at school no parents/family members are allowed into the main teaching block unless they have signed in at reception and given a visitors badge.

School visitors sign in to school and wear a Visitor’s badge.

There is car parking available for staff and visitors. Parents park on the main road to drop their children off at school. The bus also stops on this road in a designated space. Those who live locally are encouraged to walk; those living in villages within our catchment area are encouraged to use the school bus.
