John Ray Infant School badly damaged by fire.

A school in Braintree will relocate to the former site of Takeley Primary School after it was badly damaged by fire on Saturday.

John Ray Infant School will use the building as a temporary solution for pupils and teachers.

It is hoped the Takeley site will be ready for Year 1 and Year 2 children on 18 September, followed by reception age children on the 23 September.
