Parents are continuing their protest against plans to axe middle schools in Suffolk.
About 40 people staged a demonstration in Market Hill at Brandon against the potential closure of Breckland Middle School.
Another demonstration is planned for Friday, March 13, between noon and 1pm outside the Brandon school in Crown Street.
And the Save Breckland School group will be staging a fundraising cake stall and music from the school's steel pans band between 8am and 1pm in Market Hill on Saturday.
The Brandon protests come as education chiefs have been threatened with legal action by councillors who claim consultation over plans to axe Suffolk's middle schools was a “sham”.
Forest Heath District Council has hired the services of a barrister to look at whether the Conservative-led authority has a case against the Tory-run Suffolk County Council over its school organisation review.
