Two new classrooms have been included in proposals to expand a market town's primary school, in a project which would see it welcome almost 100 more students.
Suffolk County Council is consulting on a proposal to expand Edgar Sewter Primary School in Halesworth.
The proposal includes a new stand-alone block providing two classrooms, relocated library, WC’s and ancillary rooms.
Internal changes within the main school building will increase and improve staff and administration accommodation.
The proposed expansion increases capacity of the school from 315 pupils to 420 pupils, with the work completed and ready for September 2022.
