There was a tear in the eye as mums across West Norfolk waved off their youngsters on their first day at school yesterday – with others due to start lessons next week.

And as some parents said goodbye to their four- and five-year-olds, others were being urged to take advantage of dozens of new, free, childcare places.

The area’s secondary schools also welcomed their newest students yesterday, but there are worries as some were short on numbers.
