The plans to expand Claydon Primary to 2.5 form intake to cope with children from Blakenham Fields are almost ready to discuss with local residents.
The main resident concern will I am sure be parking and safety at the school entrance. Busy parents or carers need to drop children off on their way to work, so they dont have time to walk to school despite the benefits the exercise brings.
If we could find money to resurface the car park at the recreation ground it would be more attractive. The footway to the school would make it a safe option but the cost would be high. We must get an estimate to see how big the task would be.
Unfortunately there is no space for a drop off point, a drive through school, where children could be handed to staff!
