Parents of children at a school in Essex which was destroyed by fire over the weekend have started a fundraising campaign to help rebuild it.
The start of term has been delayed for nearly 300 pupils at John Ray Infant School in Braintee because of the blaze.
Essex County Council has pledged to rebuild the school "as soon as possible" and alternative arrangements are being made for children to make sure they do not miss too many lessons.
An investigation into the fire has found it was started accidentally.
