There has been a considerable media coverage recently regarding Reinforced Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (RAAC) and its use in educational settings. RAAC is a lightweight form of concrete; because it is weaker than regular concrete, concerns have been raised about its long-term durability. These concerns have escalated during last summer with partial or full closures of some schools.
During the last academic year, schools were asked to fill in a questionnaire regarding their estates. We responded promptly to this call for information.
RAAC was used in building construction between 1950s until the 1990s, and therefore we would like to reassure parents that no RAAC has been used in the construction of our school which was built in 2005.
