It is not every year children get to start their education in a new school – but these are the youngsters who are using the recently built facilities at Trinity.

The Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School in Combs Ford, Stowmarket, has opened its doors to its first intake of pupils.

The school has 20 reception-aged children so far with more expected to join over the course of the year.

Headteacher Linda Curran-Spain said: “The vision for the school is to provide a distinct Christian education for the children of this area and to be an environment where children can be their best.

“The reaction so far is that the children have settled in to school amazingly well.”

The school will not have children in every year group until 2021.
