A north Norfolk school that is located close to the site of recent cliff falls has taken action to ensure its pupils remain safe.
Drone footage has highlighted how close Sidestrand Hall special school is to the cliff edge.
Several tonnes of earth fell onto the beach in separate cliff falls last week.
Headteacher Sarah Young said; "Following the recent cliff fall we have sought expert advice to ensure that our school remains safe.
"A review by a coastal engineer has identified that there are no buildings or people at risk currently.
"A further survey will take place to see if we need to move our boundary fence and until then all pupils will use our main playing field which is close to the school buildings.
"Parents have not raised any concerns to the school but they can be assured that pupils' safety remains our number one priority."
