Pupils urged to take care after pupil is hit by car outside school
Pupils of Fakenham High School have been reminded to take care when crossing the road after a 12-year-old boy was hit by a car outside the school.
The boy, a pupil of the school, was received treatment at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, King's Lynn, following the incident at around 3.45pm on Monday last week.
Head teacher Matthew Parr-Burman said he believed the boy has broken some bones in his foot.
Mr Parr-Burman, who has been at the school for just four weeks, said the boy had walked about 200 yards down Field Lane and was knocked by a car when he walked between two parked buses and poked his head out.
He said: 'This was a rare incident and we constantly monitor health and safety at the school.
'Pupils are told not to walk between parked buses and the boy is aware that he did the wrong thing.
'Staff have been told to remind students to be careful when crossing the road.'
