A Great Yarmouth school is considering its options on whether to go-ahead with its annual trip to Paris next month following the terrorism attacks in the city last Friday.
Great Yarmouth High School had planned to take 40 pupils over to Paris on December 14 but are now considering what would be best for their pupils following the French Ministry of Education and Home Office's advice to avoid travelling to the country with school groups.
Chairman of the school's board of governors Rev Derrick Hill said: 'There will be no immediate decision on the matter but we obviously need to pause and consider what happens next.
'We need to take on-board all of the information and then make a decision which is best for the safety of the children and the members of staff who will be on the trip.
'We want the children to enjoy the trip and learn more about France but we must of course put their safety first.'
