A Halesworth primary school which closed for a "circuit breaker" after a Covid outbreak has reopened.
Edgar Sewter Primary School, in Norwich Road, announced the closure in a letter to parents on April 25.
The letter came after the school reported a total of 17 coronavirus cases.
A significant number of cases were among the school's Year 3 and Year 4 bubble.
As a result of the rising cases, headteacher Katherine Milk announced the school will close completely in a bid to stop the spread of the virus.
The closure, which was in effect until Thursday, also affected children of key workers.
