More schools added to list of those with crumbling concrete

The number of schools in England where dangerous reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC) has been found has risen by 27.

An original list – published just days before the start of the new school year – showed there were 147 schools and colleges with RAAC as of August 30.

It has now increased to a total of 174, the Department for Education has said. 

Schools across the country have been disrupted for emergency works with classrooms taped off due to ‘serious health and safety concerns’.

At least four schools have had to switch to remote learning for all students, rather than face-to-face lessons, because of the concrete crisis.

An additional 20 schools had to offer some remote learning to pupils at the start of the academic year as RAAC was present in their buildings.

Hundreds of surveys have been carried out in schools across England to determine the extent of the problems caused by the building material.

Education Secretary Gillian Keegan said: ‘We are taking a cautious approach so every parent in England can be reassured their child is safe in their school.

‘School and local leaders deserve huge credit for making sure the vast majority of settings with confirmed RAAC are continuing to offer pupils face-to-face learning – including all of the 147 schools initially identified two weeks ago.

‘We will continue to work closely with affected schools and provide both expert and financial support to minimise disruption and keep staff and children safe.’
