RAAC affecting schools and colleges in Wales


NEU Cymru is contacting all Local Authorities in Wales and written to the Minister for Education and Welsh Language, Jeremy Miles, to seek further information amid concerns about the use of RAAC in schools and colleges in Wales.  Wales Secretary of the National Education Union Cymru, David Evans, said:

“Our members in schools and colleges, learners, their parents, and the communities served, are entitled to know what the position is regarding the prevalence of RAAC in school and college buildings as soon as possible.

“Concerns over RAAC use have been known for a significant period of time but, as yet we do not know how many buildings are affected nor the proposals for necessary mitigations and rectification of the issue.

“Safety is our primary concern, and our expectation is that Welsh Government and each Local Authority will act with the utmost urgency on this matter with the necessary funding provided for any mitigations and temporary solutions, as well as supplying any capital funds needed. We are contacting the Minister and every local authority to clarify the situation for our members as soon as practically possible.”
