The development of school travel plans - which encourage walking or cycling - resulted in the school receiving £250.

Stevie Spencer, Smarter Travel Choices Officer at Norfolk County Council, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the successes of Norfolk schools with their ambitions to reduce car trips on the school run. On top of a 10.7pc reduction in journeys to schools by car, at this year's awards we are celebrating 100pc of schools in Norfolk completing their travel plan.”
