Media Statement: RAAC Concrete in Staffordshire Schools

Posted on Saturday 2nd September 2023

The DfE has not advised that any Staffordshire school is affected by safety concerns.

Jonathan Price, Staffordshire County Council's Cabinet Member for Education, said:

We have not been advised by the DfE that any Staffordshire school is included in the 104 schools that will have to be closed.

The safety of pupils and school staff is our top priority, and we have already carried out an initial assessment on the 126 local authority maintained schools in Staffordshire. Some schools require a further assessment, which is already under way and will be completed shortly.

The majority of schools in the county are Academy schools who are responsible for their own buildings, and we have offered advice and support to them on this issue.”
