Councillor and business leaders gathered to celebrate the topping out of a new free school in Oulton.
The Limes Primary Academy, in Lime Avenue, will be run by the REAch2 Academy Trust, initially offering 60 places in Reception in September with an eventual total capacity for 420 children.
Building work started on the school in July last year and when completed will also offer 30 pre-school places to the local community.
James Reeder, Suffolk county councillor for the Oulton Division, visited the site to witness the placing of the last piece of felt cap sheet on the 1,300 square metre roof – an important milestone in the construction of the building.
Mr Reeder said: 'The academy has been designed to be adaptable and flexible so it can be used by the local community outside the school day.
