You may well have seen in the news that some schools have been affected by the presence of RAAC in their buildings. RAAC, or Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete, is a lightweight form of concrete which was used in schools and other building construction from the 1950’s until the mid-1990s. After some time and in some circumstances this concrete can collapse.
However, I wanted to write to reassure you that the County Council had this school surveyed by properly qualified building surveyors in the last few years. We can confirm that there is no RAAC in this school, and no risk to pupils or staff.
For any further information, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.
