The government has confirmed that at least 100 schools in England are affected by concrete safety fears. The concrete, known as reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete (RAAC), can deteriorate over time and become a safety hazard.

In some cases, schools have had to close or partially close due to the risk of collapse. In others, schools have had to install scaffolding or propping to support the concrete.

The schools affected by the concrete safety fears are located across England. Some of the schools that have been affected include:

  • Aston Manor Academy, Birmingham
  • Aston Manor Academy, Birmingham
  • Buckhurst Hill Community Primary School, Essex

The government has said that it will be working with schools to identify and fix any unsafe concrete. The cost of the repairs is estimated to be in the millions of pounds.

The issue of crumbling concrete in schools has been a growing concern in recent years. In 2021, the government announced that it would be reviewing the use of RAAC in schools. The review is due to report back later this year.

In the meantime, the government has said that it will be working with schools to identify and fix any unsafe concrete.

The news that at least 100 schools are affected by concrete safety fears is a major concern. It is important to ensure that schools are safe for pupils and staff. The government needs to take action to fix the unsafe concrete and to prevent any further problems.
