A village school has launched a buy a brick appeal to raise money for a new classroom.
The Parents and Friends Association at Harpley Primary School has already raised more than £7,000 towards the cost of a cabin classroom.
They hope that construction work on the building can be carried out over the summer holidays.
The school, between King's Lynn and Fakenham, is expecting from 50 to almost 70 pupils in September.
Now Harpley-based business Navitas EAS has launched an appeal to raise the final £1,000 needed to buy children some extra space.

'Being a company which works closely with the construction industry, purchasing a brick seemed a perfect way for Navitas EAS to get involved.
'We are looking forward to seeing the cabin completed and our gold brick engraved in the classroom.
'The school has family connections for us whilst being located in our local community and we are overjoyed to be able to assist them with their latest project.'
Head Ann Beardall said: 'I'd like to thank the Parents and Friends Association for all their fund raising - it's something the school really needs.
'We'd also like to thank Navitas for all their support.'
Parents organised a spring fling, raffles and went on sponsored runs to raise money towards the cabin.
The school, built of local carrstone near the centre of Harpley, has served the village since 1908.
Last year Ofsted inspectors gave it a good rating, praising its caring, friendly atmosphere.
They said pupils talk about their school with enthusiasm and pride and use the word family to describe It.
Bricks to raise the last £1,000 towards the cabin room range from Bronze (£25) and Silver (£50) to Gold (£100).
