The official opening plaque was unveiled by Councillors Graham Newman and Lisa Chambers followed by a tour of the new state of the art school building.
The school has been built using sustainable methods and maximises natural sunlight and natural ventilation and where it has been possible the sustainable elements have been made visible so pupils can understand the way in which the building works.
The design allows for a natural progression through the school as pupils move through the key stages and classrooms are set into clusters so that their activity areas and resources are shared, whilst allowing the whole school to feel connected.
The long term aspiration is for the building to become a local hub for the community.
Councillor Graham Newman, Suffolk County Council’s cabinet member for education and young people, said:
"This £5 million investment into the education system in this area will go a long way to improving prospects for local children.
The state of the art facilities will allow for a creative and adaptive curriculum that will aid teachers and school staff to support the pupils to achieve great results and to enjoy their education."
Councillor Lisa Chambers, county councillor for Red Lodge, said
"fantastic to have this modern and sustainable school in our area. This investment makes such an important contribution to our children’s educational aspirations, giving them the very best start in life. I am delighted to have opened the school and I know that pupils are very excited about getting to know their way around the new school in September."
